Key recommended findings from lawyers assisting the royal commission into gangland lawyer turned super snitch Nicola Gobbo's relationship with Victoria Police:
* Various current and former Victoria Police officers may have committed criminal offences including perverting the course of justice and misconduct in public office.
* If the gangland-busting Purana Taskforce had its own lawyer in 2005, Ms Gobbo likely would never have been recruited as an informer.
* If Ms Gobbo's representation of clients she had snitched on was not to Victoria Police's advantage, the force would have taken steps to prevent it.
* While most current and former members of Victoria Police were aware of the risks of using Ms Gobbo, they were reluctant to concede.
* The circumstances in which Ms Gobbo was recruited, handled and managed by Victoria police "resulted in her being placed in grave danger of being murdered or seriously injured".
* Former chief commissioner Simon Overland knew, possibly as early as September 2005, that Ms Gobbo was representing and informing on Tony Mokbel.
* He knew from September 2009 that Ms Gobbo's role as a human source had never been disclosed or revealed in legal proceedings and failed to ensure measures were taken to notify people whose cases may have been affected.
* In his former role as assistant director at the Office of Police Integrity, Mr Ashton failed to provide independent oversight of police integrity by not inquiring about or investigation their relationship with Ms Gobbo.
* As then chief commissioner, he last year expressed the view the pub test is a more acceptable standard of police conduct than what the rule of law requires.
* Sought to justify potentially corrupt activity by Victoria Police on the basis that "the end justifies the means".
* He sought to avoid Victoria Police taking responsibility for the conduct of officers involved.
* Assistant Commissioner Luke Cornelius knew in 2006 that Ms Gobbo was a registered informer and should have insisted on legal advice and insisted on measures to ensure there were no potential adverse effects on the justice system.
* Ms Gobbo may have committed criminal offences including perverting the course of justice and aiding, abetting or conspiring with police to obtain property and financial advantage by deception.
* She gave deliberately evasive evidence to the inquiry in February 2020 which suggested she knew she had deliberately lied, or at best knowingly misled, the Supreme Court while under oath years earlier.
* She entered the chambers of fellow barrister, now Tasmanian magistrate Sharon Cure, without permission and looked through confidential material relating to a case against underworld killer Carl Williams.
