Victoria Minister for Racing Martin Pakula
Statement On Racing Victoria Investigation
Victor P Taffa
Minister for Racing Martin Pakula has released the following statement on the Racing Victoria Investigation.
I’m aware of an investigation into the activities of licensed persons in the Warrnambool and Ballarat area by Racing Victoria’s Integrity Services and Victoria Police’s Sporting Integrity Intelligence Unit.
As Minister for Racing and a racing lover, I’m committed to maintaining the integrity of our sport and any allegations of breaches are extremely disappointing.
This investigation demonstrates that integrity officials of Racing Victoria will enforce the rules of racing without fear or favour.
As the matter is subject to an on-going investigation by Victoria Police and Racing Victoria, it would be inappropriate to comment further.
