I have now reviewed the partial information released by Victoria Police about its investigation into Wilson and The AWU Scandal in 1995.
The file released by the police does not include witness statements and it's heavily redacted. It's therefore difficult to follow much of the investigating officer's logic leading to a conclusion that no offences were detected.
Keep in mind that this investigation was concluded before the discovery of the Australian Workers' Union Workplace Reform Association. It also appears that Wilson was not interviewed by police.
On the material available in the file, it appears that the investigating officers concentrated on the funds dispersed from AWU Members Welfare Association No 1 Account. Here is a copy of the cash withdrawals from that account by Wilson.
Here is the investigating officer's report to his superiors at the conclusion of his investigation on 30 May, 1996.
Harry Nowicki was the applicant for this file. He has reviewed it and today has written to Victoria Police with these comments.
I would reiterate to Victoria Police that there are changed circumstances since their brief investigation.
Ralph Blewitt has made certain admissions about serious indictable offences in Victoria. He has stated that he will be fully co-operative with police in return for immunity from prosecution for the offences he has committed.
Since Victoria Police's initial investigation, the evidence of the purchase of 1/85 Kerr Street Fitzroy, the apparently back-dated and falsely created Power of Attorney and the discovery of the Australian Workers' Union Workplace Reform Association have come to light.
I'll let you know about the response to Harry's letter.
