Recommendations for corruption prevention

The Commission has made three corruption prevention recommendations to the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, and the government generally.

Recommendation 1

That any future amendments to the Aboriginal Lands Right Act 1983 are sensitive to the resource implications of compliance with the amended legislation for the Aboriginal land rights network

Recommendation 2

That the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs consults with the NSW Aboriginal Land Council regarding the Aboriginal land rights network's financial and resource capacity to provide support and capability development to LALCs across NSW

Recommendation 3

That the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs considers a review of the operation of Part 10 of the Aboriginal Land Rights Act 1983 in meeting the expectations of the land rights network by excluding individuals who have been found to have engaged in corrupt conduct or in serious misconduct for a period of up to five years.
