The ACT government has criticised the Sofronoff inquiry for providing copies of its final report to media under embargo before the findings were sensationally published on Thursday.

In an explosive statement on Thursday afternoon, an ACT government spokesperson said the government was “disappointed that the Sofronoff Board of Inquiry Report has been released to select media outlets”. There is no suggestion that Walter Sofronoff KC was responsible for or involved in the release.
