Independent Commissioner Against Corruption

There is to be an Independent Commissioner Against Corruption (‘ICAC’). Parliament has sought to “establish in South Australia an independent body focussed entirely on preserving and safeguarding confidence and the integrity of the functions performed by public officers, agencies and authorities in South Australia.”

The Commissioner will have several functions including identifying and investigating corruption in public administration. Furthermore, the Commissioner will refer matters for prosecution. Conduct relating to public officers including bribery, threats and dishonesty offences will fall under the scope of what is to be considered by the Commissioner.
