Messenger named Whistleblower Supporter of the Year

FORMER Member for Burnett Rob Messenger has been announced as the joint winner of the Whistleblower Supporter of the Year award.

Mr Messenger came to the attention of the group for supporting Toni Hoffman, the nurse who made allegations against former Bundaberg surgeon Jayant Patel.

"Mr Messenger has, since that time, also supported the dissemination to the public of disclosures by other whistleblowers, including Darren Hall," the group said in an issued statement.

Mr Messenger said the award was quite a surprise.

"It's lovely recognition," he said.

But he said justice for Mr Hall, a former policeman accused of corruption, was still to be served.
