The Royal Commission (RC) launched their investigations (Case Study 18) at the beginning of October, 2014, exposing conflicts of interest, shortcomings and mismanagement by the AOG/ACC executive and its then President, Brian Houston, when handling the Frank Houston child sex abuse allegations.

  1. “AHA has not been helped. We are hearing unsubstantiated
    rumours that they want to take action. We can also confirm
    that more evidence has been handed into the Royal
    Commission questioning Houston’s testimony.”

    Earlier in the year Chris Rosebrough said on his podcast that his contacts in Sydney, aka you, had told him that the RC report on Hillsong was going to be released in mid July. That hasn’t happened. So how accurate are these current ‘rumours’ and ‘conformations’?

    What do you mean by ‘they want to take action’?
