Aboriginal land councils - third report - travel allowance and expense claims by NSWALC Councillors

The ICAC investigated the practices and procedures of Aboriginal land councils in NSW and produced three reports on this investigation between April 1998 and October 1999.

The third and final report, made public in October 1999, concerned the conduct of councillors of the NSW Aboriginal Land Council (NSWALC), in particular claims made by them for travel and other expenses. In this report the ICAC made findings of corrupt conduct against three NSWALC councillors and stated its opinion that consideration be given to their prosecution for specified offences, the taking of disciplinary action against them with a view to their dismissal as councillors and, in the event that they do not repay money wrongly claimed, received and retained by them, to civil proceedings by NSWALC against them for the recovery of such money.
