The Financial Services Royal Commission has uncovered a staggering degree of misconduct and potential criminal activity.
But the Commonwealth Public Prosecutor has suffered significant budget cuts and is no match for the deep pockets of the banks.
We need to make sure that corporate criminals are brought to justice. That’s why a Shorten Labor Government will establish a Corporate Crime Taskforce to help tackle corporate crime, will you pledge your support?
The Corporate Crime Taskforce will equip the Commonwealth Public Prosecutor to respond to recommendations for criminal prosecution which stem from the Financial Services Royal Commission.
While the Corporate Crime Taskforce will focus on handling any recommendations for prosecution made by the Financial Services Royal Commission, it will also be available for more general corporate crime prosecutions if necessary.
If big corporates or their employees break the law, they need to know that they will be prosecuted by the best of the best.
So pledge your support for Labor’s Corporate Crime Taskforce and help Labor make sure that misconduct at the top end of town is never excused.
