Enquiry into Cornelia Rau’s Mistaken Detention to be Held in Private (updated)

It appears that the government has decided that the enquiry into why Cornelia Rau was mistakenly put into detention for 10 months will be held in private by former Australian Federal Police commissioner Mick Palmer.

Apparently this is to protect her privacy, which whilst being a nice ideal given some of what she has gone through that has appeared in the press, is also fairly convenient for the government and the officials involved.

Update: Cornelia Rau’s family have called for a public enquiry, saying:

"We would have preferred an open inquiry which could hear Cornelia’s psychiatric history in camera"
