SECTION 298-105   298-105   EVIDENCE GIVEN IN PROCEEDINGS FOR PENALTY NOT ADMISSIBLE IN CRIMINAL PROCEEDINGS  


Evidence of information given or evidence of production of documents by an entity is not admissible in criminal proceedings against the entity if:


(a) the entity previously gave the evidence or produced the documents in proceedings for a civil penalty order under the civil penalty provisions against the entity (whether or not the order was made); and


(b) the conduct alleged to constitute the offence is substantially the same as the conduct in relation to which the civil penalty order was sought.

However, this does not apply to a criminal proceeding in respect of the falsity of the evidence given by the entity in the proceedings for the civil penalty order.
