Greyhound Racing Victoria (GRV) has primary responsibilities in regards not only the day to day greyhound racing product (racing integrity) but also the behaviour of industry participants, club and GRV employees (people integrity).
Following the Judge Gordon Lewis report of 2009 and more specifically, formation of the Racing Integrity Commission (RIC), contemporary GRV policies and/or rules were updated requiring employees to consider and acknowledge integrity responsibilities, at least annually. One such rule states that certain GRV employees are not permitted to be involved in any form of betting on any greyhound racing event.
As an extension of recent investigations from the Office of the RIC, the GRV Integrity Sub- Committee (ISC) has determined that two GRV employees be disciplined for inappropriate betting practises. Accordingly, one fulltime GRV staff member has been dismissed and another part-time employee has received a First and Final warning.
It is important to note that following this total investigation, GRV is satisfied that there is no evidence or suggestion that any collusion or corrupt practices have taken place.
There are no further matters being investigated by the ISC.
