Morrison govt 'launched an unlawful assault' with robodebt scheme

  Morrison govt 'launched an unlawful assault' with robodebt scheme Bill Shorten has reprimanded the Morrison government for the controversial robodebt scheme, saying “they were so keen to make up a false budget surplus they thought they could get away with picking on the most vulnerable Australians".In a Senate inquiry, it was revealed the Morrison government received legal advice that its robodebt scheme could be illegal.

Former Opposition leader Bill Shorten says "crooks” are “skimming” the accounts of vulnerable Australians who are reliant on the National Disability Insurance Scheme, and says there are “inadequate resources” to chase the fraudsters.

“The crooks can sort of break the 10-digit NDIS number that you have, and then they can start skimming the accounts of the people who are getting the packages,” Mr Shorten said.

“The NDIS simply tops up the money but puts inadequate resources into chacing the fraud.”

When asked about reports NDIS management was willing to accept a 10 percent threshold for fraud, Mr Shorten said it was “staggering”.

“If that’s the case there’s a 10 percent tolerance, that’s $2 billion,” he said.

“Tens of thousands of Australians have trouble getting into the scheme … so the government’s got a padlock on the front of the scheme but it's got the welcome mat out the back for the crooks."
