Commission's response to ABC 730 on Stephen Sasse

20 October 2015

The Royal Commission has made very detailed attempts to locate Mr Sasse's diary notes.

Lawyers for Thiess John Holland have informed the Commission that all relevant archived material has been searched without success.

Pages 19-26 of the Sasse MFI#5 bundle disclose relevant communications between the Commission and lawyers acting for Thiess John Holland between 3 August 2015 – 17 August 2015.

The Commission's investigation into the matter, including the pursuit of relevant documents, is ongoing.

The Commission will treat seriously any allegation that documents relevant to its inquries have been improperly destroyed.

Any new information that comes to light about the location of the documents will be investigated.
