Revival of the common law offence of misconduct in public office

David Lusty wrote:The ancient common law offence of misconduct in public office has recently
enjoyed a major resurgence in many jurisdictions, including New South Wales
and Victoria, yet it has received relatively little attention from academics and
commentators. This article presents a comprehensive analysis of the offence,
drawing upon historical precedents and contemporary case law from around
the world. It is submitted that this 800-year-old offence has stood the test of
time and continues to provide a crucial mechanism for preserving the integrity
and fidelity of public officials, including Members of Parliament and Ministers of
the Crown.
