District Court

In reply to the Hon. S.G. WADE ().19 October 2022).

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector): I have been advised:

A total of four additional associates have been appointed. Three additional associates were employed during September 2022 and a fourth commenced on 31 October 2022.

The additional funding was provided to the CAA to manage and accommodate multidefendant trials, such as supporting the efficient case management and trials for Operation Ironside, which are likely to involve an unprecedented volume of evidence management and specialised security requirements.
