| ||Statement from AWB regarding Federal Court decision on Legal Professional Privilege|| ||
AWB Limited accepts the Federal Court decision today regarding the judgement in the case AWB Limited v Honourable Terrace Hudson Cole.
AWB is considering its position but is unlikely to appeal against the reasons for the decision.
AWB welcomes the Federal Court’s decision that most of the 900 documents, which were subject to the Proceeding, were privileged.
AWB accepts the finding that privilege was waived on approximately 350 of those documents.
AWB will wait until the outcome of the Cole Inquiry before making any further public comments.
