Investigation Report 02/2010: An investigation into allegations about the Australian Crime Commission relating to compliance with a Direction made under section 25A(9) of the Australian Crime Commission Act 2002

The quarantining, from criminal proceedings, of self-incriminatory information gathered through coercive questioning is a fundamental principle of Australian law. This investigation examined whether an agency with coercive examination powers acted intentionally to circumvent that doctrine.
