Report Finds Private Records Access at Top of Misconduct
PRIVACY—AUSTRALIADecember 3, 2010
A report released last week shows that 600 federal bureaucrats breached their professional code of conduct last year, the majority of those involving misuse of the Internet and improperly accessing private records, Canberra Times reports. Of 970 government investigations in 2009-2010, three out of five found a breach had taken place, the report states. However, examples of misconduct tended to be isolated examples where individuals exercised poor judgment.
