Melbourne Lord Mayor Robert Doyle has denied allegations that he sexually harassed a woman during his tenure as chairman of Melbourne Health. The alleged victim has told the inquiry headed by Ian Freckelton QC that Doyle touched her inappropriately during a Melbourne Health function in 2016. Victoria’s Health Minister Jill Hennessy has commissioned a separate inquiry, to be headed by Charles Scerri QC, into Doyle’s conduct. Doyle is expected to appear before the Freckelton inquiry shortly. He has denied the sexual harassment allegations made by former councillor Tessa Sullivan and Greens councillor Cathy Oke.
