Absolute liability applies to whether the property is Commonwealth property or not. This means that it does not matter whether you knew it was Commonwealth property.
It is an offence under the Criminal Code (Commonwealth) to dishonestly obtain Commonwealth property by a deception with the intention of permanently depriving the Commonwealth of it.
If you suspect that you may be under investigation, or if you have been charged with an offence, it is vital to get competent legal advice as early as possible. Our lawyers are highly specialised in corporate crime and will be able to guide you through the process while dealing with the various authorities related to your matter.
