Event information

Registration for this event closes at Tue 31 Dec 2024 00:00.

The Witness Statement Form is used for a registered participant of La Trobe League, Staff Member, or Match Official to submit a witness report for a reported incident. 

Submissions of a witness statement are sent to the Incident Review Officer, who looks after any reports. The witness statement forms a summary with all other available evidence to come to a decision on an incident. 

Additionally, please view our Incident Review Protocols which go through the policies in place for an incident review. Please see below for a summary of the witness statement policies as directed in the Incident Review Protocols: 

6.1 A witness statement will only be collected through the Statement Collection form, made available after a review has been launched.  

6.2 The Incident Lodgement Form will act as the witness statement of the submitter; they will also be afforded the opportunity to provide an additional statement.  

6.3 Once the relevant witness has been notified, they will have 48 hours to complete a written witness statement. Once the 48 hours from the time of notification has elapsed, a witness will no longer be able to submit a statement.  

6.4 La Trobe Sport may collect witness statements after this period, if the statement is vital to the review, or if deemed appropriate by La Trobe Sport. La Trobe Sport will have the final say in this instance.
