Abstract

Social security crimes could be committed intentionally or unintentionally by the claimant. Those who were facing charges by the plaintiff of Commonwealth Australian government Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) could experienced certain degree of anxiousness if without sufficient legal knowledge to understand the basic human rights available to defend oneself from being accused in law court. Limitation of legal assistance from the community legal centers would encourage do-it-yourself independent legal studies habit, where the defendant may need to prove the absence of dishonesty in the crime commitment. The article provides basic information on the social security crimes for those non-legal practitioners in the settlement of disputes of social security with the government of Commonwealth Australia.
