Department of Gaming and Racing - inspection and regulation of licensed premises

The ICAC investigated the conduct of a senior inspector with the Department of Gaming and Racing, specifically his dealings with the owner of a licensed hotel and his financial and business relationships with a number of other persons associated with other licensed premises.

In its report on this investigation, made public in September 1998, the ICAC made findings of corrupt conduct in respect of the former inspector and an associate. No recommendations in relation to prosecution or disciplinary action were made in the report. The report also identifies corruption risks associated with inspectorial and licensing functions and reports on action taken by the Department of Gaming and Racing to address these risks.
