The lawyer who runs a complaints system for the Catholic Church in Melbourne has criticised police evidence to the Victorian child sexual abuse inquiry.

Police allege Peter O'Callaghan QC tipped off a member of the clergy who he knew was under investigation by police.

Mr O'Callaghan has told the inquiry that is not true and says the police submission to the inquiry was a farce.

"The submission rejects the criticisms which are made in it, and we submit that the police submission and action is, in many aspects, plainly wrong and seriously misconceived," he said.
