Reporting Potential Falsehoods
Potential online falsehoods should be reported directly to the relevant Ministry as they would be best-placed to assess if a statement is a falsehood and whether it is in the public’s interest to act.
If you are unsure of which Ministry the falsehood falls under, you may also report the falsehood here.
Ministers may instruct the POFMA Office to issue a direction if there is an online falsehood and it is in the public interest to do so. POFMA Office will only issue POFMA directions upon instruction from a Minister.
