Information Commissioner ready to head to Court

The Information Commissioner Jan Liebaers says he’s ready take the Premier’s office to court for contempt.
That’s if they do not respond to his order to turn over the Ritch immigration report by Monday.
The legally stipulated 45-day period expires Monday for the Office of the Premier to either file for judicial review of the ICO order or hand over the report which addresses the permanent residency application backlog.
Mr Liebaers says he will write to the Chief Justice if nothing is received from the Office of the Premier by Monday.
“Essentially, the courts can then take up the matter and then the office of the premier can be found in contempt of court for basically ignoring my order. I hope it does not come to that, but that would be the next step,” Mr Liebaers says.
The Office of the Premier is yet to respond to queries on what action it intends to take in response to the ICO order
