Auditor-General's Report

In reply to the Hon. L.A. HENDERSON ().14 November 2023).

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

All 31 ex gratia payments finalised and paid during 2022-23 concerned matters in which allegations of sexual offending were made, with some also including allegations of physical violence.

Charges were laid in 25 of the 31 matters. Charges were not laid in two cases due to the alleged offender being unknown.
