Whistleblower on trial! Below is the man who thinks you are too inferior to know what is going on
POLICE Commissioner Andrew Scipione once tried to prevent details of a serial child sex attacker being released publicly despite the fact he remained at large, it was claimed yesterday.
The revelation came at a sentencing hearing for former superintendent Adam Purcell, forced out of the police force in part for disobeying that order.
Mr Purcell has pleaded guilty to two charges arising out of a Police Integrity Commission hearing and faced a sentence hearing in the District Court yesterday.
Purcell admits divulging details of the child sex attack investigation to a reporter.
Then-assistant commissioner Mark Goodwin told the court he had acted on orders from Mr Scipione - then the deputy commissioner - to ensure detail about the serial nature of the offences not be released.
Mr Goodwin said the directive should have been followed but he believed Purcell should have been allowed to use his discretion.
