Berejiklian done with ICAC…


…but is NSW’s anti-corruption commission done with her – that is the question. The state’s former premier spent a 2nd day in the hot seat talking about her relationship with disgraced former Wagga MP Daryl Maguire and how it affected her conduct in office. Giving evidence, she said the pair’s “close personal relationship” didn’t need to be declared to her colleagues when she was NSW treasurer and premier because it didn’t undermine her duty to the public. Despite his banishment from public life in 2018, the relationship continued until last year when she was called to give evidence in ICAC’s investigation into allegations of his corrupt conduct. Her grilling is over, and Berejiklian says she will now “get on with my life” – and she will no doubt run the ruler over her “love circle”… Experts say it could take a year for ICAC to report its findings and recommendations.
