Gandangara LALC - allegations concerning chief executive officer and board members (Operation Greer)

The ICAC investigated allegations concerning the Gandangara Local Aboriginal Land Council (GLALC) (Operation Greer), including that, between February 2007 and March 2014, GLALC board members partially exercised their official functions by agreeing to employment arrangements with GLALC CEO Mark Johnson under which his company, Waawidji Pty Ltd, derived benefits from the GLALC.

It was also alleged that Mr Johnson improperly exercised his public official functions, by: between March 2011 and April 2013, authorising the transfer of GLALC funds to Gandangara Future Fund Ltd; between 2009 and 2013, authorising the payment of GLALC funds for the benefit of Deerubbin, Walgett and La Perouse Local Aboriginal Land Councils, and partly for the benefit of Waawidji Pty Ltd; and between 2010 and 2014, claiming the provision of benefits from GLALC for himself or Waawidji Pty Ltd, including money, to which he knew he was not lawfully entitled.

In its report on the investigation, made public on 23 February 2017, the Commission makes findings of serious corrupt conduct against Mr Johnson. There are no findings of serious corrupt conduct made against members of the GLALC board.
