Victorian FOI Commissioner 'under investigation'

 This report in The Mandarin is all I know:

Secretary of the Department of Premier and Cabinet Chris Eccles  told the the Public Accounts and Estimates Committee:
“There were certain matters that were brought to my attention — and it’s not appropriate to disclose the detail — which I consider to be sufficiently serious to call upon the Public Service Commission to initiate an inquiry. “That inquiry is on foot, and the matter is before government.” A government spokesperson told The Mandarin: “The Secretary of the Department of Premier and Cabinet commissioned a review of the Office of the FOI Commissioner by the Victorian Public Sector Commission, after receiving certain allegations. The review was led by the former Public Sector Standards Commissioner, Mr Peter Allen. The review’s findings are currently under consideration by the Government.”
