Michael McGurk and others – allegations of corrupt conduct (Operation Calpurnia)

The Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) investigated allegations of corrupt conduct principally arising from:

  • an audio recording made by Mr Michael McGurk of a conversation in which a representation was made that a corrupt payment could be made to a senior public official with respect to a proposed development; and
  • various statements alleged to have been made by Mr Michael McGurk to various people relating to corrupt conduct by NSW public officials and others, including but not limited to, conduct in relation to the possible re-zoning of property at Badgerys Creek.
In its report on this investigation, made public on 25 March 2010, the ICAC stated that it found that the allegations investigated were without substance. No findings of corrupt conduct were made.
