I rise today to say a huge thankyou to my 2020–21 intern, Daniel Rappel. The Monash University Victorian parliamentary internship program is such a mutually beneficial initiative. Students get a taste for public policy, whilst policymakers can explore an issue in depth with the help of a university student. Daniel’s intern topic focused on reform to suppression orders. I asked him to explore this area, as I have concern about the lack of open justice in Victoria. In 2017 an independent review of the Open Courts Act 2013 was conducted by former Supreme Court of Appeal judge Frank Vincent. Daniel’s report responded to a number of these changes that have not been implemented and made some new recommendations he developed through research and interviews. In May 2019 we saw the first tranche of changes to the Open Courts Act, but here we are over two years later without much movement on the rest. Just one recommendation in Daniel’s report talks about the necessity for the recording of every judicial decision to place suppression orders so that they can be adequately scrutinised and to provide accountability of the courts to adhere to legislation correctly. The Premier stated in relation to the 2017 first tranche of changes that, and I quote: When issuing a suppression order, courts will be required to provide a statement of reasons outlining the basis for the order, its duration, and the scope of information it covers. Yet we have not seen this recording of reasons for 29 per cent of blanket ban suppression orders, and further, most recordings of reasons just refer to the grounds and do not provide any context. Thank you, Daniel, for your hard work. I am looking forward to pushing the government to implement a number of these changes.
