Government drawn into AWB scandal

The oil-for-food scandal surrounding the Australian Wheat Board continues to widen, with the Federal Government now drawn into the affair.The Cole Inquiry warned the government it would push to have its role in the affair included in the terms of reference if it uncovered any evidence of illegal behaviour.This comes at a time when the inquiry heard warnings over illegal trucking fees to Iraq were known of as early as 2000.Despite this information, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, government trade body Austrade, and Australia’s mission to the United Nations all seem to have failed to pursue the AWB over the matter.
