Leading barrister Geoffrey Watson SC has criticised the premature release of a report making damning findings against ACT director of public prosecutions Shane Drumgold SC, and said the inquiry has missed an opportunity to examine the nation’s treatment of sexual assault complainants.

The ACT government is expected to release the final report of the Sofronoff inquiry into the ACT prosecution of Bruce Lehrmann as early as Monday, days after its contents were reported in detail by the Australian and the ABC.
