The Government has missed its proposed deadline of December 2013 for the tabling of legislation in Parliament to establish a single anti-corruption agency.

However, Justice Minister Senator Mark Golding said the bill will be tabled early in the new year.

Golding told Senators yesterday that the Integrity Commission bill to establish the single anti-corruption agency, the disabilities bill, the occupation safety and health bill, a new road traffic bill and the DNA bill would be brought to Parliament next year.

The single anti-corruption agency was first proposed by former Contractor General Greg Christie.

He wanted the agency to be vested with the exclusive mandate to criminally investigate and prosecute all corruption and related criminal offences.
