RoLIA has made a submission to the Legal and Constitutional Affairs References Committee in respect to the inquiry into the current investigative processes and powers of the Australian Federal Police (AFP) in relation to non-criminal matters. This inquiry arose as a result of the use of search warrants against Seven West Media Limited in relation to a proceeds of crime investigation with regard to Seven West Media allegedly providing Schapelle Corby payments for an interview.
RoLIA’s submission made some suggestions for an amendment to s225A of the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 which can be found in Appendix B of the submission.
RoLIA Vice President, Malcolm Stewart, can be contacted for further information regarding the submission at firstname.lastname@example.org
