Investigative Hearings

The Australian Crime Commission (ACC) and the Crime and Misconduct Commission (CMC) have far reaching powers to summons people to give evidence. A right of silence does not apply within those commissions.

However, you are still entitled to have a lawyer present to ensure that your rights are not infringed. We recommend that you seek legal advice before appearing in any tribunal. Often, we can delay your appearance for a reasonable time to allow you to obtain legal advice.
