ICAC Act (NSW) and access to legal advice - 1991

CM. 25.9.91.

The NSW CCL calls for amendments to s.112 of the ICAC Act to guarantee that persons called before that organisation maintain their common law right to seek legal advice on all matters that concern them. The Council calls for the end to the power claimed by the ICAC to prohibit witnesses from seeking legal advice.

The CCL notes that the police and the courts do not have such a power.
