In a previous post, I have questioned why there is not the equivalent of the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) that exists in NSW, does not have a similar agency in the ACT for those who wish to report suspected corruption or fraud committed by or against the ACT Government.
Given the recent allegations made against the ACT Public Trustee, I accessed the ACT Government website and cannot find a “Report Fraud” link or contact. Searching for “Fraud” on the website gives no joy. I also note that in December last year, the ABC reported that lax computer security may expose the ACT Government to fraud.
Does suspected corruption or fraud within the ACT Government have to be discovered or reported from within, or do citizens have to voice their concerns to media to get some action?
