Royal Commission Correspondence

Phillip Sweeney made this Freedom of Information request to Australian Securities and Investments Commission

Currently waiting for a response from Australian Securities and Investments Commission, they must respond promptly and normally no later than (details).

From: Phillip Sweeney


Dear Australian Securities and Investments Commission,

The following was reported in the media following the release of the final report of the Hayne Royal Commission:

"Hayne recommended 24 cases of misconduct be referred to the financial regulators for consideration of civil or criminal action. The referrals involve almost all of the major banks except Westpac. ASIC says it has “prioritised” the cases, but would not comment in further detail."

Therefore there must be some formal correspondence from Royal Commissioner Hayne, the "office" of the Royal Commissioner, or by someone acting on behalf of the Royal Commissioner to ASIC.

The correspondence may have been addressed to the ASIC Chairman, James Shipton, the "office" of the Chairman, or to some other staff person at ASIC.

The document I seek is a copy of the correspondence in which Royal Commissioner Hayne has made such a recommendation.

Yours faithfully,

Phillip Sweeney
