Harness Racing Authority of NSW - allegations against the Chairman of Stewards

The ICAC investigated allegations concerning the conduct of the Chairman of Stewards of the Harness Racing Authority of NSW.

In its report on this investigation, made public in August 1996, the ICAC stated that it had found no direct credible evidence to support the allegations made against the Chairman of Stewards, nor any other evidence from which the truth of the allegations could legitimately be inferred. No findings of corrupt conduct or recommendations with respect to the prosecution or taking of disciplinary action against any person were made in the report. The ICAC made a recommendation that the Code of Conduct with regard to harness racing stewards be revised to better regulate relationships between stewards and others involved in harness racing operations.
