Government ignores white-collar wrongdoing with Trade Union Royal Commission

Acting Greens Leader Adam Bandt MP today said the government is continuing to turn a blind-eye to white-collar wrongdoing.

“Where is the Royal Commission into allegations of white-collar wrongdoing, like the financial planning schemes that saw people lose their home or the Reserve Bank bribery scandals?” Mr Bandt said.

“We have heard many stories about the devastation everyday Australians have faced from trusting supposed white-collar experts, yet the government fails to respond.”

“If you’ve got a blue-collar, this government throws the book at you, but white-collar wrongdoing is ignored.”

“The Abbott government spends millions going hell for leather after its political opponents, but turns a blind-eye to white-collar wrongdoing.”
