Statements about individuals

The Commission has

agreed to suppress names of individuals in published submissions where

it is alleged that those individuals have acted inappropriately or illegally.

The objective of this is to avoid publicity about an individual when there

has been no opportunity to test the claims made against him or her.

This decision is

in accordance with the Directions issued by the Human Rights Commissioner

on 19 April 2002 entitled 'General Directions by the Human Rights Commissioner:

Preservation of Anonymity and Limitations on Publication.' These

directions are to be found on the Commission's website at: http://www.humanrights.gov.au/human_rights/children_detention/privacy.html

Disclaimer

The Commission is

publishing these submissions without modification for public information

and to facilitate comment. The submissions may contain errors and their

publication does not represent any finding by the Commission about the

matters contained in them. The Commission notes that matters of fact and

of interpretation are likely to be raised in the public hearings to be

conducted.
