MEDIA RELEASE

Greens call for National Commission against Corruption

Leader of the Australian Greens, Senator Christine Milne will address the Tasmanian Greens annual conference today, and announce that the Australian Greens will push again for legislation to set up a National Commission Against Corruption.

Senator Milne will address the Tasmanian Greens conference at 12 noon today at Forth Primary School, and will be available to answer questions from the press afterwards.

"Following the further revelations about the RBA scandal, the Greens urge the Parliament to pass legislation for a National Commission Against Corruption." Senator Milne said today.

"The widening of the RBA scandal reminds us of the systemic failure to be able to address corruption.

"We need to be able to address corruption through a national oversight body. States already have such a body, we need one that encompasses all the agencies.

"Whilst we need a National Commission against Corruption, it does not remove the need for the judicial inquiry into the RBA."
