Australian Crime Commission To Follow Up Report Into Doping In Sports By June 2015
The Australian Crime Commission "is set to table a follow-up to its explosive report into doping and the integrity of sport by June 2015," according to Proszenko & Aston of the BRISBANE TIMES. The office of the Minister for Home Affairs Jason Clare confirmed that the ACC "still intended to fulfil the recommendation of the first report and undertake a second." While there was not any confirmation of when the follow-up will begin, "it is likely to begin within 12 months to make the deadline, as it is understood the original report took about a year to compile" (BRISBANE TIMES, 8/4). In Sydney, Matt Murnane reported Australian Football League Essendon officials "have received the document that could decide the club's fate and will start to prepare a response to the findings of the investigation into football's drugs drama." The Bombers confirmed late on Sunday that they "had received the 400-page interim report compiled by the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority" (SYDNEY MORNING HERALD, 8/5).
