Department of Justice – corruption allegations concerning courthouse refurbishment contracts (Operation Yancey)

The ICAC investigated corruption allegations concerning the abuse of procurement processes by Department of Justice Asset Management Branch assistant director capital works, Anthony Andjic, in the awarding of contracts to refurbish NSW courthouses in 2013 (Operation Yancey).

In its report on the investigation, made public on 22 November 2016, the Commission makes findings of serious corrupt conduct against Mr Andjic, Shadi Chacra, Fayrouz Hammoud and Fatima Hammoud.

The ICAC is of the opinion that the advice of the Director of Public Prosecutions should be obtained with respect to the prosecution of Mr Andjic, Mr Chacra, Fayrouz Hammoud, Fatima Hammoud and Hakime Hammoud for various offences.

The Commission has made six corruption prevention recommendations to the NSW Department of Justice to help it prevent the recurrence of the behaviour that was examined in this investigation.
