Hearing Block 2 – Sydney
The Royal Commission into Defence and Veteran Suicide will hold its second public hearing in Sydney at the Pullman Hotel, Hyde Park on February 14, 2022. The hearing will continue to focus on people with lived experience and will also hear evidence from a number of experts.
The Commission Chair, Nick Kaldas, said he was mindful serving and ex-serving Defence personnel have been waiting a long time for change.
“The Commission has a grave responsibility to create real and lasting change for the serving and ex-serving Defence community, their families and supporters,” Commissioner Kaldas said.
“We are acutely aware that each day of inaction puts people’s lives at risk.”
The hearing will commence at 10:00 am (AEDT).
Hearing Block 3 will also be held in Sydney between 7 and 18 March.
