This section looks at offences from the Crimes Act (NSW), Crimes Act and Criminal Code Act (Cth) and Independent Commission Against Corruption Act (NSW).
Corruption, as a term, envelops a broad expanse of criminal conduct which benefits a party by convincing another, who has power or authority, to do or not do something to the persons benefit or the benefit of another, which benefit they would not ordinarily be entitled to. Or, causes a detriment to another, which detriment, the other person would not ordinarily be subject to. This definition, while appearing broad, is narrow when compared to the various cases and legislation on the subject.
The courts have always been severe with regard to dealing with offenders who commit corruption offences, understandably so, which is why advice and representation by experienced and knowledgeable legal practitioners is so crucial.
