Labor’s anti-corruption commission lines up Coalition MPs

Labor has indicated that its proposed national anti-corruption commission will be given powers to investigate misconduct retrospectively. Shadow attorney-general Mark Dreyfus has indicated that the commission is likely to have the power to investigate corruption or misconduct that is alleged to have occurred up to 15 years ago. Dreyfus adds that politicians and public servants could face scrutiny even if they are no longer in public office.

The anti-corruption commissions in NSW and Victoria also have retrospective powers.
