Information for witnesses

If a person is required to give evidence at the Royal Commission, it is usual practice for the Commission to issue a summons to that person.

Prior to giving evidence, witnesses will be contacted by the Royal Commission and provided with information about claiming expenses and travel assistance.

A person who is summoned to attend and give evidence before the Commission is allowed to be legally represented while he or she is giving evidence.

If you have received a summons and have further questions, please contact the Royal Commission by email at ACRCsolicitor@royalcommission.gov.au or by telephone on 1800 960 711.

Information on legal financial assistance for people engaging with the Royal Commission is available on the Attorney-General Department’s website.
