The Queensland police minister, Mark Ryan, was sent an audio recording of officers joking about beating and burying black people last month, but declined to meet with the whistleblower who sent it.
On Sunday, Guardian Australia published recordings made by Marshall, which revealed QPS staff at the Brisbane city watch house using racist language and offensive slurs.
The recordings follow evidence at the state inquiry into police responses to domestic and family violence, which included dozens of examples of racist, misogynistic and sexist behaviour by police. The inquiry is due to table its final report today.
Marshall went public with the recordings after reaching out to Ryan and sending one audio file to his office, alongside other allegations of misconduct.
Marshall said he believed the response put him at further risk.
