14 June 2018 Often, we hear of corruption in politics. Initially politicians look for funds to pay for election expenses. Then when they find an opening they begin to use that opening to enrich themselves. Next in line is the senior public offices who often negotiate contracts for the government. They have the avenue of getting kickbacks to enrich themselves. But we seldom hear any royals being involved in any corrupt activity as they do not intervene in the administration of the country.

4 June 2018 Australia’s Commonwealth Bank has agreed to pay a fine of $530 million for breeching anti-money laundering laws. This will be the largest civil penalty in Australian corporate history, if the courts approve the fine. The bank would also cover A$2.5m in legal fees accrued by investigators. “The money laundered through the CBA accounts included the proceeds of drug and firearms importation and distribution syndicates – predominantly involving methamphetamine,” the court document said.
