Summary Investigation Report on Robocalls


122. Having carefully examined all of the evidence, the Commissioner found no reasonable grounds to believe that an offence under the Act had been committed.

123. This stems from the fact that, based on the evidence gathered, it cannot be established that calls were made a) with the intention of preventing or attempting to prevent an elector from voting, or b) for the purpose of inducing an elector by some pretence or contrivance to vote or not vote, or to vote or not vote for a particular candidate.

124. In the absence of the necessary degree of proof relative to intent, the Commissioner will not refer the matter to the Director of Public Prosecutions.
