    National Australia Bank has been chastised for withholding a document from the banking royal commission that showed bosses knew about widespread fraud in its controversial “introducer program” months before telling the regulator.

    The commission’s also heard evidence on Wednesday of NAB’s desire to begin a compensation program for customers who had been affected by an alleged bribery ring involving NAB staff in 2015, chiefly to protect the bank’s reputation.

    Our man left NAB in 2014, but this compensation program would surely have been designed and implemented under his watch before the alleged problem surfaced in 2015?

    As I understand it, the introducer stuff was just small amounts taken as bribes from people who couldn't afford to service a loan on the usual basis.

    Hardly something a CEO of a bank would be involved in, or given the level at which it occurred, even hear about.

    No, this was branch manager and below level.

    If upper echelon management had heard about it when it was still occurring, heads would have rolled, as those heads were expendable.

    The real pain for the banks and their senior officers relates to much, much bigger issues which will be revealed in the course of the RC.

    It is premature, dangerous, and possibly a contempt of the Commission to speculate on it here and now.

    I would recommend people refrain from doing so, and if they have an issue, raise it in a submission to the RC. That would be a far safer course for all concerned.

    But surely Fulvio this 'Finder' program would have need to have been endorsed by the Bank executive prior to implementation and they should have ensured that sufficient safeguards were in place to prevent this rorting from happening?

    The whole point of taking or asking for bribes is for the receiver to obtain a personal benefit without superiors being aware of it.

    Does the CEO of Peters Icecream get to hear about a delivery driver taking home a drumstick?

    I dunno, I saw one bribe where the boss used the money to pay all the workers who hadn't been paid by the big boss in a long time, it was called "transport fees"

    The CEO may not get to hear about a delivery driver taking home a drumstick (not sure why he would take home a drumstick), but it is his job to ensure the systems are in place to prevent this type of activity. If he hasn't put the systems in place to ensure integrity of the process then he is incompetent. (IMO)

    Here is The Age's take on it

    We really need something to knife de Clyne as ASIC could take two years to investigate.
