The Crime & Misconduct Commission (CMC) and the Australian Crime Commission (ACC) often issue summons to individuals to further their investigations.
What Should I Do if I’ve Been Summonsed?
If you have received a summons, you are not permitted to discuss the matter with any person apart from your legal representation. Otherwise, you are liable to police charges. There are numerous requirements that you must abide by when participating or choosing not to participate in these types of proceedings and the process can be complicated. It’s important to get advice that’s specific to your circumstances.
