Updated: BMCC Granted a Supreme Court Injunction Against Minister’s Notice of Suspension
The Minister issued the notice after suggestions of a conflict of interest emerged in relation to the Council’s independent investigation into asbestos management.
As at close of business yesterday the Council had received no indication from the Minister as to her intended action.
The Council has exercised a delegation and sought an injunction in the Supreme Court against the Minister acting on her Notice, on the basis that there are no grounds upon which the Minister may properly suspend the elected body of the Council.
An injunction was granted last night by the Supreme Court. The Minister has been informed.
If the Minister had moved to suspend the Council that would be considered determinative and no further action could be taken.
The proceedings are expected to come before the court at 10am today, Friday 23 February.
