Deferred Prosecution Agreements for serious corporate crime in Australia?

The Commonwealth Government is considering the introduction of Deferred Prosecution Agreements (DPA). DPA’s are agreements where in exchange for corporations abiding by certain conditions (such as paying a fine and implementing remedial measures) the prosecution agrees not to seek Court prosecution and a conviction. A Consultation Paper was released in March 2017 and submissions were required by 1 May 2017. Submissions have been filed by various organisations such as Korda Mentha and CPA Australia. This is something to keep an eye on.
