20,000 Documents Destroyed by Mistake

An investigation into the accidental destruction of documents from Queensland’s famous Fitzgerald Inquiry has found those responsible for the failure broke the law.

The Crime and Misconduct Commission shredded up to 4,000 documents by mistake and publicly released hundreds of others that were supposed to be kept secret.

After weeks of public hearings generated sometimes scathing evidence, a report has been released with 24 recommendations to prevent it from happening again.

And it calls for another investigation to determine who should be punished and how.
