AU: No charges over secret documents found in second hand cabinet

No charges? No surprise.

Canberra News reports:
No charges will be laid by Federal Police following the investigation into the discovery of classified documents in a cabinet from a Canberra second-hand store. An AFP spokesman says thorough investigation has been conducted and no further action will be taken.
The papers, from Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull’s department revealed secret cabinet discussions from the last four Governments as well as details on the NBN, refugee policy and welfare cuts.
So okay, but explain why no charges will be filed. Is AFP saying that as long as something was an error, there will never be charges? If not, under what circumstances will there or might there be charges?  What if it hadn’t been secret cabinet discussions but had been HIV status on named patients?
