Statement on the historic assassination of Assistant Commissioner Colin Winchester
The AFP has not reopened previously closed files into the Winchester assassination.
There is no evidence to suggest Italian organised crime was responsible for the death of one of our own, Assistant Commissioner Colin Winchester.
Our thoughts are always with the Winchester family.
The AFP wants to be clear: there is no recent, AFP review, report or intelligence, that suggests the mafia is responsible for the murder of former Assistant Commissioner Winchester.
There is no open investigation into this matter. It is not under review.
