Police Commissioner Bob Atkinson tried to block release of critical Doomadgee report []

Mr Atkinson tried to stymie the Crime and Misconduct Commission's report into the investigations of the 2004 death of Mr Doomadgee, warning that it would stifle co-operation and harm the relationship between the crime bodies.

In correspondence obtained by The Australian, Mr Atkinson also pushed to shelve the CMC's report for ever, suggesting the then 200-page draft be kept even from officers accused of bias and "protecting their own".

Instead, Mr Atkinson supported a now-discredited internal review by two senior officers, who recommended "managerial guidance, correction and chastisement" for the four police who conducted the initial investigation.

The internal review was ordered after Deputy State Coroner Christine Clements slammed the death-in-custody probe as lacking "transparency, objectivity and independence".

Police chief wins more time for Palm Island decision []

From source article...

Queensland's Police Commissioner has won an injunction against himself in Brisbane's Supreme Court, thus gaining more time to reply to a damning Crime and Misconduct Commission report.

The CMC had given Commissioner Bob Atkinson until Tuesday afternoon to advise on whether disciplinary action would be taken against six police officers who investigated the 2004 death in custody of Palm Island man Cameron Doomagee.

Two of the officers are seeking separate injunctions to stop the Commissioner from handing down any such disciplinary action.

Please refer to linked source article above for full story.
