Chair of the Royal Commission Justice Peter McClellan said the Commissioners and staff of the Royal Commission are deeply saddened by the death of Anthony Foster. We extend our condolences to Chrissie Foster and her family.
Anthony and Chrissie dedicated many years of their lives to bringing about justice for survivors of child sexual abuse.
Their tireless advocacy helped bring about this Royal Commission.
They attended hundreds of days of public hearings and participated in many of our policy roundtables.
With a dignity and grace, Anthony and Chrissie generously supported countless survivors and their families whilst also managing their own grief.
Commissioners and staff at the Royal Commission are deeply shocked and saddened by this news.
