The Greens’ Meredith Hunter is calling for a review of whistleblower laws.
The ACT Greens will today table a motion calling for a review into Whistleblower laws, a response to the Justice and Community Safety Report into the Freedom of Information Act 1989 and a response to the Ombudsman’s concerns about complaint handling in the ACT.
“A robust system of accountability mechanisms together with a culture of openness is essential for good governance,” ACT Greens Parliamentary Leader, Meredith Hunter MLA, said today.
“Whistleblower laws have been the subject of all manner of reviews over many years across many different jurisdictions in Australia and around the world. The ACT should take advantage of all of this work and improve our system.
Nothing like mechanisms and frameworks to give bureaucrats something to hide behind.
