The Senate will debate the government’s anti-corruption commission model with the legislation set to pass parliament this week.
Anti-corruption watchdog enters final leg
The final form of the national anti-corruption commission will take shape as senators nut out the body’s finer details.
The government’s signature integrity watchdog will be debated in the Senate, where the opposition will try to insert further penalties and give people being investigated greater legal protections.
Amendments include new offences for vexatious referrals that intend to harm another person and for a referral to be publicly disclosed without permission.
Both would carry a one-year jail term.
