Statement regarding Dr Benjamin Koh

9 March 2016

Commonwealth Bank encourages all employees to speak up if they see activities or behaviours that are fraudulent, illegal or inconsistent with our values. We provide a number of different safeguards to ensure that there are no negative consequences for raising concerns.

We have thanked Dr Koh for raising concerns that led to the CMLA Board conducting a review.

Dr Koh's employment was not terminated for raising concerns. It was terminated primarily for serious and repeated breaches of customers' privacy and trust involving highly sensitive personal, medical and financial information over a lengthy period of time.
