Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) media director Mike Tancred has been cleared of four complaints after a review by an independent committee.

The complaints, from three former staff and a member of the public, were considered separately to the complaint made by former chief executive Fiona de Jong.

Mr Tancred has been suspended since April on full pay over accusations by Ms De Jong that he bullied and intimidated her.

He was cleared of bullying Ms De Jong in June, but was severely reprimanded for his behaviour towards her.

The review was completed an independent committee made up of the former High Court Judge Ian Callinan AC and former NSW Supreme Court Judge Greg James AC QC.

The review found that none of the four complaints “had been made on an objective basis”.

A spokeswoman for the AOC said whether Mr Tancred resumed his role was in the hands of current chief executive Matt Carroll.

Last week another independent review of the AOC found the organisation’s own staff described it as “out of step” and “dysfunctional”.
