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

Jessica Zhang, Australian Securities and Investments Commission

Dear Australian Securities and Investments Commission,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Australian Securities and Investments Commission's handling of my FOI request 'Royal Commission Correspondence'.

Extensive media coverage was given to the findings of Royal Commissioner Hayne, including the fact that the Royal Commissioner had referred certain misconduct matters to ASIC for further action.

There must be some documents associated with this referral.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.righttoknow.org.au/request/r...

Yours faithfully,

Phillip Sweeney
