Walter Sofronoff KC’s damning findings against ACT chief prosecutor Shane Drumgold SC could spell the end of Drumgold’s legal career.
It has been reported that former Liberal Party staffer Bruce Lehrmann will sue the ACT Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions over his prosecution.
This follows the ACT government receiving the Sofronoff report examining misconduct in the prosecution case which is expected to contain damning findings against Director of Public Prosecutions Shane Drumgold.
The report has not been released to the public, for reasons that have not been fully explained.
Lehrmann alleges that Drumgold attempted to withhold police documents from his defence lawyers, read Higgins’ confidential counselling notes and undermined Lehrmann’s presumption of innocence.
