THE investigation is into crime not faith. The crimes were heinous and committed against children.
For many victims the offences were repeated, raising suspicions they were covered up.
For these reasons, and to place this investigation above and beyond politics, I have repeatedly stated it is more appropriate for a retired judge or a Queen's Counsel - instead of a parliamentary committee - to conduct the Baillieu Government's Inquiry into the Handling of Child Abuse by Religious and Other Organisations.
