LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Sir – Adam Giles must answer questions about when he became aware of the former Police Commissioner’s conflict of interest – before or after he gave the police portfolio to the Deputy Chief Minister, Peter Chandler.
The Territory needs an ICAC style body, an independent watchdog that would restore Territorians’ confidence in Government, which includes the police force.
This latest saga has left Territorians with questions about the integrity of the Territory’s decision makers.
Compounding this issue is the lack of confidence Territorians have in the CLP Government in the midst of its own Foundation 51 controversy.
It is clear that the Territory is in need of an independent body that could swiftly stamp out any issues afflicting Territory decision makers.
In the current absence of an ICAC, Territorians have no choice but to accept the “word” of Adam Giles.
