Civil or Criminal Liability

No civil or criminal liability for giving information to the Commission

Under the law, a person is not liable to any civil or criminal action, including disciplinary proceedings,
for giving information in good faith to the Commission. Good faith means acting on an honest belief
held on reasonable grounds that the information was true at the time the information was given to
the Commission.
The protection from civil or criminal action applies despite the person being subject to a
confidentiality provision or a duty of confidentiality, or any other prohibition or restriction on
disclosure under any other law of Papua New Guinea.
