Update on the release of the UC investigation findings: Media statement

Former High Court Judge Hon Kit Toogood QC, who is leading the independent investigation into the death of a student at Sonoda Village residential hall, has provided UC with this statement for media today:

“I would like to update the timeframe of expected delivery of my report. The investigation is still continuing and my updated expectation is for the report and recommendations to be finalised later this month.  While I appreciate that this delay will be frustrating for all involved it is important that a thorough and comprehensive process is followed and I have sufficient time to complete my report.” Hon Kit Toogood QC

We will continue to keep UC staff updated.
