Description

Australian Progressives hold the view that we need to widen the scope and levels of the ICAC bodies and strengthen protections for whistleblowers.

Serious corruption has been exposed in all levels of government and across the business/corporate world. Bribery, extortion, theft, fraud, abuse of discretion, favouritism and nepotism (to name a few forms of corruption) have a range of negative impacts ranging from direct financial cost, loss of fairness through to flow on consequences of undermining public trust, health and safety.
