Commission of Inquiry of HMAS Success to continue tomorrow

A public hearing of the HMAS Success Commission of Inquiry will continue tomorrow (Tuesday, 1 June 2010), 1000 hours AEST at Defence Plaza, Level 11, 270 Pitt Street in Sydney.

The Commission of Inquiry is examining alleged incidents of unacceptable behaviour of the crew on board the HMAS Success, that were brought to the attention of the commanding officer between March and May 2009. Issues associated with the subsequent management of such allegations and the personnel allegedly involved will also be examined.

I have previously discussed this topic here, here, here, and here. I will be in attendance at tomorrow's public hearing to cover it for the blog.

The Australian Defence Force previously made available to the public the instrument of appointment in the Commission of Inquiry into the HMAS Success. The seven page ADF document, dated 9 March 2010, can be found here.

A webpage has been setup by the Senate committee titled "Inquiry into an equity and diversity health check in the Royal Australian Navy - HMAS Success" which can be found here. The terms of reference for the Senate inquiry can be found here.
