The royal commission heard of the suicide pact between the then police commissioner and the commissioner of the AFP in the wake of the Bali Ni슬롯 머신ne tragedy and of the commission’s conclusion there was insufficient evidence to establish whether the commissioner had lied or misquoted police, the chief public prosecutor told the royal commission.

The inquiry has heard about a number of other claims, including the claims by
