National Parks and Wildlife Service and ICAC - allegations of corrupt conduct

The ICAC investigated matters arising from a memorandum that a former employee of the National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS), claimed to have discovered on his NPWS personnel file in the presence of another NPWS employee. The memorandum indicated that NPWS officers had engaged in corrupt and criminal conduct and also contained an inference that an ICAC officer was prepared to act inappropriately at the request of NPWS officers.

In its report on this investigation, made public on 19 December 2001, the ICAC made findings that the former employee had been responsible for creating the memorandum and placing it on his NPWS personnel file and made findings of corrupt conduct against him and the other employee. The ICAC stated its opinion that consideration be given to the prosecution of both individuals for specified offences and that consideration be given to the taking of disciplinary action against the other employee.
