Senate Select Committee on the Lindeberg Grievance

About the Committee

The Senate has established a Select Committee on the Lindeberg Grievance to examine whether false or misleading evidence was given to previous Senate committee inquiries on matters raised by Mr Kevin Lindeberg. The Committee is also examining whether any contempt was committed in relation to evidence given on the shredding of the so-called Heiner documents, in light of material that has emerged in the Dutney Memorandum, the Forde Commission of Inquiry into Abuse of Children in Queensland Institutions and any other evidence. The Committee will also be considering the implications of this mater for measures to prevent the destruction and concealment by government of information of public interest, protect children from abuse and protect whistleblowers.
