Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions - circumstances surrounding the offering of no evidence by the NSW DPP on an all grounds appeal at Lismore District Court

The ICAC investigated the circumstances surrounding the offering of no evidence on an All Grounds Appeal at Lismore District Court on 25 May 1995 relating to a charge of goods in custody; and the relationship between certain officers of the Lismore Office of the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) and members of the New South Wales legal profession, and the effect of those relationships upon the administration of justice.

In its report on this investigation, made public in June 1997, the ICAC made no findings of corrupt conduct against any person. In its report the ICAC noted the absence or inadequacy of, and departures from, proper systems and procedures in the Lismore Office of the DPP and made recommendations to the DPP to address these deficiencies.
