CORPORATIONS ACT 2001

CHAPTER 9 - MISCELLANEOUS  

PART 9.4B - CIVIL CONSEQUENCES OF CONTRAVENING CIVIL PENALTY PROVISIONS  

SECTION 1317Q  

1317Q  EVIDENCE GIVEN IN PROCEEDINGS FOR PENALTY NOT ADMISSIBLE IN CRIMINAL PROCEEDINGS  

Evidence of information given or evidence of production of documents by an individual is not admissible in criminal proceedings against the individual if:


(a) the individual previously gave the evidence or produced the documents in proceedings for a pecuniary penalty order against the individual for a contravention of a civil penalty provision (whether or not the order was made); and


(b) the conduct alleged to constitute the offence is substantially the same as the conduct that was claimed to constitute the contravention.

However, this does not apply to a criminal proceeding in respect of the falsity of the evidence given by the individual in the proceedings for the pecuniary penalty order.
