The Hon Justice Paul Brereton AM RFD SC Commissioner, National Anti-Corruption Commission says despite three decades of advancements in Australia’s integrity landscape, the need for ongoing vigilance “cannot be denied.”

Oz Minerals has agreed to $9.3m settlement after self-reporting foreign bribery, highlighting the need for a carrot and stick approach to enforcement.
