Parramatta City Council - corrupt conduct associated with regulation of brothels (Operation Pelion)

The ICAC investigated allegations that a compliance officer at Parramatta City Council solicited and received corrupt rewards in connection with the exercise of their official functions.

In its investigation report, made public on 22 August 2007, the ICAC found that that the officer and 10 brothel operators and prostitutes engaged in corrupt conduct. The ICAC stated its opinion that consideration should be given to obtaining the advice of the Director of Public Prosecutions with respect to the prosecution of the officer and 10 other persons for criminal offences.

Thirteen corruption prevention recommendations were made – 10 to Parramatta City Council and three to the NSW Minister for Planning and the NSW Attorney General.
