Attorney-General pursuing Fletcher with blistering speed .
Fairfax Media understands the logical choice, of passing the information on to the NSW police, was considered inappropriate because Cunneen had professional associations and friendships with many of the police top brass due to her role prosecuting some of the state's most serious offenders.
Separately, the ACC may have considered Cunneen's long-running friendship with Steve Fletcher, one of the nation's biggest gamblers and a person with underworld connections. For more than five years, Fletcher has employed Cunneen's son Stephen.
Six months before the fateful car accident, Fletcher had been the subject of an unrelated Police Integrity Commission inquiry into his 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 many internet betting agencies.
It was Cunneen who introduced Fletcher to one of the detectives embroiled in the PIC inquiry, homicide detective Tony "Soup" Williams. No allegations were made about Cunneen at the inquiry.
Williams, who has since left the force and is waiting to hear if he will face criminal charges, met Fletcher during Cunneen's prosecution in the Lyndsay van Blanken murder trial.
Fletcher, who was alleged in the PIC inquiry to have received inside information on a wide range of sports from greyhounds to the tennis, is also waiting to hear whether he will face criminal charges.
Because of his previous friendship with Cunneen, the decision on whether to criminally charge Fletcher for fraud offences over his "police" betting accounts was removed from the DPP and sent instead to the Crown Solicitor's office.
This week the Attorney-General's office said that a "senior counsel and a junior counsel" had been briefed to advise "on the sufficiency of the evidence and the prospects of a possible prosecution".http://www.smh.com.au/nsw/car-crash-and-fake-boobs-make-margaret-cunneens-battle-with-icac-great-fodder-for-sydney-shock-jocks-20151209-glj8zt?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter
