Inquiry Into Victoria's Hotel Quarantine Program

The inquiry into Victoria’s bungled hotel quarantine system will hold its first public sitting in just 8 days amid concerns serious limitations of the probe may stop the truth from surfacing.

No witnesses will be called at the July 20 hearing but Jennifer Coate, who is leading the inquiry, and counsel assisting, Tony Neal QC, will both make short opening statements.

Further public hearings are expected to be held in August.  The proceedings will be live-streamed and transcripts will be made available shortly after the proceedings.  Letters will also be to agencies asking them to identify any shortcomings with respect to the quarantine program.

A final report is due by September 25.
