Mr Wayne Goss Premier and Ultimately Responsible for The Heiner Affair
4.8 Both Mr. Martindale and Ms. Kinder subsequently left the union and found senior employment with the Goss administration in the Health Department and Premier’s Department respectively.
4.9 For the record, before and after my dismissal I took advice from and used solicitors C.A Sciacca and Associates, which included my subsequent subpoenaed appearance before the Cooke Commission of Inquiry into Certain Queensland Unions in May 1991. In this matter, both the Hon. Con Sciacca and solicitor Mr. Brian Kilmartin have first hand knowledge of it. The Cooke Inquiry was prevented from investigating the circumstances surrounding my dismissal when the Goss Government terminated its funding at the time it knew the Coyne case would come under investigation by Commissioner Marshall Cooke QC.
