Former BlueScope executive Jason Ellis has pleaded guilty in Sydney’s Downing Centre Local Court to one charge of obstructing a cartel investigation.
The charge related to Mr Ellis’ actions during an investigation by the Australian Competition and Consumer Competition into alleged cartel conduct by BlueScope, Australia’s biggest steelmaker, and its representatives.
The matter was prosecuted by the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions. In a statement today the ACCC said Mr Ellis pleaded guilty to one charge of inciting the obstruction of Commonwealth public officials in the performance of their functions.
