Operation Angove - An investigation into possible corruption issues regarding the Department of Home Affairs and its interactions with Crown Casino

Operation Angove was an investigation into corruption allegations concerning interaction between the Department of Home Affairs (Home Affairs) and the Australian Border Force (ABF) with Crown Melbourne Limited (Crown) and their VIPs who travelled to Australia, particularly from China, to gamble in their facilities.

The investigation considered three allegations:
• whether there was corruption by Home Affairs staff in relation to the provision of Australian visas for Crown VIPs.
• whether there was corruption by ABF staff in relation to the clearing of those VIPs at the Australian border.
• whether an ABF staff member engaged in corrupt conduct while employed by a VIP junket operator.

The investigation did not find evidence of corrupt conduct by Home Affairs or ABF staff in relation to any of the three allegations.
