The Australian Banking Royal Commission - Whats it all about?
What is the royal commission?
The banking royal commission was established in late December, after years of public pressure from whistleblowers, consumer groups, the Greens, Labor, and some Nationals MPs.
Its first public hearings began on 13 March, and they will run at irregular intervals through 2018.
The royal commission has been asked to investigate whether any of Australia’s financial services entities have engaged in misconduct, and if criminal or other legal proceedings should be referred to the commonwealth.
