The NSW Crime Commission and Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (formerly the Australian Crime Commission) investigate serious and organised crime. If you receive a summons to give evidence then you must attend. At the hearing, you will be questioned and cross-examined. You may find that the evidence you give under questioning exposes you to criminal prosecution.
Get a defence lawyer before giving evidence at a Crime Commission hearing
It is advisable to arrange legal representation for any crime commission hearing. You have the right to object to certain types of questioning. However, without legal expertise, you may find it difficult to raise appropriate objections on your own behalf. The consequences of not objecting when needed can be serious.
