Administration of the Expensive Commonwealth Criminal Cases Fund
Please direct enquiries through our contact page.
This audit would assess the effectiveness of the Attorney-General’s Department’s administration of the Expensive Commonwealth Criminal Cases Fund (ECCCF).
The Attorney-General’s Department administers and implements programs and services to improve access to justice for vulnerable people, including legal assistance programs.
The ECCCF is to ensure that legal aid commissions have sufficient resources to represent people who cannot afford private legal representation and have been charged with serious Commonwealth criminal offences (such as drug importation, people smuggling, terrorism, fraud and slavery) or are subject to an application for a post-sentence order (such as continuing detention orders).
