Read the Finance Inquiry Commission of Inquiry report

Last month the courts finally lifted an injunction preventing the publication of the damning Commission of Inquiry report into corruption in the Department of Finance (the so-called "Paraka Scams').

The Commission spent several years investigating allegations of widespread corruption but in 2010, the day after its report was tabled in parliament, lawyer Paul Paraka and former Solicitor General Zachary Gelu obtained a court injunction preventing its publication.

After more than three years, that injunction has finally been lifted.

The report details how the department paid out hundreds of millions of dollars in sham compensation claims.

It recommended more than 50 people including lawyers, senior bureaucrats and businessmen be referred for criminal prosecution.

The Final report of the Commission Inquiry is attached below.
