Labour's police spokesman says this raises red flags for Police Minister, Anne Tolley.The results of the first part of the report which looks in to the police's handling of the Roast Buster case won't be made public until the police's current investigation into the group is complete.It was through boasting online about having sex with young teens that the Roast Busters were brought to media attention.When the story broke at the end of last year, police initially said they couldn't investigate the teen sex group's alleged actions because a formal complaint hadn't been laid.When the story initially broke, Police said they couldn't investigate the teen sex group's alleged actions because a formal complaint hadn't been laid.However it soon emerged a young girl had complained in 2011, but her case wasn't followed up.
The findings saw no charges laid by Police regarding 8 incidents involving 7 victims and 5 suspects.
An IPCA report into the incident released last year noted that Police failed to rectify the problem until after contradictory information emerged in the media.
The report also outlined that trust and confidence is undermined when Police provide inaccurate information to the public.
The findings of the Independent Police Conduct Authority’s investigation into the Police handling of the alleged offending by the ‘Roastbusters’ will be released today.
This will be the Authority’s second report on the issue – the first was released in May last year which focussed on the information provided by Police to the media.
