Lamb Scandal: Five Questions For Matthew Guy And One For Michael O’Brien

0

Claims aired in Frankston Magistrates’ Court regarding the alleged leaking of privileged police information by former Liberal Candidate for Frankston Michael Lamb have raised serious questions for former Victorian Liberal Leader Matthew Guy and current leader Michael O’Brien.

Media are reporting today that Michael Lamb was arrested on 13 September 2018 and allegedly refused a police interview. On that very same day in 2018, Michael Lamb, Matthew Guy and Prime Minister Scott Morrison made a state election announcement together in Frankston.

  1. Was Matthew Guy aware that former Liberal Candidate Michael Lamb was arrested in September 2018, more than two months before the November 2018 Victorian election?
  2. Was Matthew Guy aware that Mr Lamb allegedly refused a police interview?
  3. Did Matthew Guy direct or suggest to Mr Lamb that he should engage in the alleged leaking of privileged police information to the media?
  4. Did anyone in Matthew Guy’s office direct or suggest to Mr Lamb that he should engage in the alleged leaking of police information to the media?
  5. Did Liberal Party campaign headquarters direct or suggest to Mr Lamb that he should engage in the alleged leaking of police information to the media?

Michael O’Brien must also show leadership:

  1. Has Michael O’Brien asked Matthew Guy or the Liberal Party what they knew about this scandal and what their involvement was?

As stated by Deputy Premier James Merlino

“These allegations are extremely serious and they demand serious answers from Matthew Guy and current Liberal leader Michael O’Brien.”

“What did they know and when? And if they were aware of the arrest, why did they keep it secret from the Victorian people?”

“Most importantly was Matthew Guy or the Liberal Party involved in this scandal – did they direct Mr Lamb to allegedly leak privileged police information to the media.”
