DOYLE TOO ILL FOR AN­SWERS

Herald Sun - - NEWS -

AN in­ves­ti­ga­tor has been con­vinced Robert Doyle re­mains too ill to be in­ter­viewed over claims he sex­u­ally as­saulted a woman at a Mel­bourne Health black­tie din­ner.

The for­mer lord mayor and Mel­bourne Health chair had been given an ul­ti­ma­tum to an­swer ques­tions over the al­le­ga­tions or sub­mit to an in­de­pen­dent med­i­cal ex­am­i­na­tion by the Depart­ment of Health.

But, as yes­ter­day’s dead­line ap­proached, the depart­ment is­sued a state­ment say­ing its in­ves­ti­ga­tor was con­vinced Mr Doyle was not fit for ques­tion­ing and the probe re­mained on hold.

“The se­nior in­de­pen­dent lawyer, Mr Charles Scerri, QC, is sat­is­fied that Mr Robert Doyle is not med­i­cally fit to be in­ter­viewed at this time,” the de­part­men­tal state­ment said.
