ACOSS Statement On NACC Decision Regarding Robodebt

ACOSS is disappointed by the decision of the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) not to investigate the people referred to it by the Robodebt Royal Commission for their conduct in relation to Robodebt.

Our hearts go out to all affected by Robodebt, including their families and loved ones. The decision by the NACC to not investigate these issues further will also be deeply disappointing to people whose lives were torn apart by Robodebt.

While no compensation has been provided to victims of the illegal and harmful scheme, no one responsible for its design, implementation and continuation has been publicly held accountable in a meaningful way. The lack of justice is the key issue that so many need resolved.

We will continue to call for those responsible for Robodebt and the severe harm it caused throughout our community to be held to account. We also reaffirm our position that all recommendations made by the Robodebt Royal Commission be implemented as quickly as possible.
