I have written a brief comment for the Oxford Human Rights Hub Blog on the Victorian Court of Appeal’s decision in Bare v Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission. Bare is the most important decision involving Victoria’s Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities since the High Court first considered the Charter in Momcilovic. In the note, however, I question one aspect of the Court’s decision: that unlike human rights instruments in Europe, the United Kingdom and internationally, the Charter does not contain an implied right to an effective, independent investigation of alleged serious mistreatment.
