I have had it confirmed by the spokesperson for the Royal Commission into Unions that Ralph Blewitt will give evidence at the Royal Commission on Monday the 12th of May. It will be a public hearing as per the below media release and this is when things start to get very serious.
HEARING INTO WORKPLACE REFORM ASSOCIATION
The Royal Commission into Trade Union Governance and Corruption will hold a public hearing in Sydney at 10am on Monday 12 May 2014 at level 17, 1 Farrer Place in Sydney.
The hearing will deal with matters associated with the Workplace Reform Association, a ‘relevant entity’ for the purpose of Term of Reference (a) of the Letters Patent issued to the Royal Commission.
Chief Executive Officer of the Office of the Royal Commission, Jane Fitzgerald, said people or organisations that have information that might be relevant to this matter are encouraged to contact the Office of the Royal Commission.
“Any person or institution who believes they have a direct and substantial interest in the scope and purpose of the hearing is invited to lodge a written application for authorisation to appear” Ms Fitzgerald said.
“Applications for authorisation to appear at the Royal Commission should be made in accordance with the Practice Direction on the Commission’s website.
“Next week’s hearing has been necessitated by the return to Australia of a person associated with the Workplace Reform Association.
“Further hearings on this matter may take place at a later date and if so, further details will be made available on the website.”
The Royal Commission can be contacted at:
