There seem to be 2 opposing views on this saga.
Chris Murphy and Kate McClymont who haven't always seen eye to eye on some matters, seem not to opposed as to the serious implications of this one.
Kate's giving the sold out Andrew Ollie memorial lecture tonight. Wonder if some part of that will include this latest episode.
Her references to Fletcher below contain some updates on the PIC inquiry which seems to be dragging out the denoument.
The 55-year-old's long-running friendship with Steve Fletcher, one of the nation's biggest gamblers and a person with underworld connections, has raised eyebrows in legal circles.
Mr Fletcher, who employed Ms Cunneen's son Stephen, was the subject of a Police Integrity Commission inquiry which investigated Mr Fletcher's use of the identities of many NSW police officers to open hundreds of betting accounts to disguise his betting activities after he was banned from placing bets with many internet betting agencies.
Ms Cunneen introduced Mr Fletcher to one of the detectives embroiled in the PIC inquiry, homicide detective Tony "Soup" Williams. The detective, Mr Fletcher and Mr Wyllie enjoyed a gambling jaunt to Las Vegas for Mr Wyllie's 21st birthday.
One police officer told the PIC inquiry that he was aware of "whispers" that Mr Fletcher corruptly used inside information in his betting activities.
Although the final report in Operation Montecristo is yet to be released, the PIC's annual report says three people involved in the inquiry have been referred to the Director of Public Prosecutions for possible criminal charges. There was no criticism of Ms Cunneen at the PIC.
Mr Fletcher, who bets up to $1 million a week, was disqualified from betting for a year by Racing Queensland after an investigation found he had prior knowledge that a jockey would ride to lose. The inquiry found Mr Fletcher and the jockey were in regular telephone contact. However, the disqualification was overturned on appeal.
