The Commission found that, during 2013, Anthony Andjic and Shadi Chacra engaged in serious corrupt conduct by agreeing that Mr Andjic would improperly exercise his official functions to financially benefit Mr Chacra. This agreement involved Mr Andjic arranging for the awarding of departmental contracts to Triton for the project management of the Camden and Picton courthouses upgrade project, and the departmental construction contracts for the Cessnock, East Maitland and Tamworth courthouses upgrades, and the Spring Street, Sydney, office refurbishment, and the awarding of contracts to SAFF for the project management of the Cessnock, Cowra, East Maitland and Gunnedah courthouses upgrades and a consultancy services contract.

Mr Andjic and Fayrouz Hammoud engaged in serious corrupt conduct by agreeing that Mr Andjic would improperly exercise his official functions to financially benefit Mr Chacra and Fayrouz Hammoud. This agreement involved Mr Andjic arranging for the awarding of the departmental construction contract to Triton for the Cessnock courthouse upgrade and the awarding of the departmental contracts to SAFF for the project management of the Cessnock, Cowra, East Maitland and Gunnedah courthouses upgrades and a consultancy services contract.

Mr Andjic and Fatima Hammoud engaged in serious corrupt conduct by agreeing to financially benefit Fatima Hammoud through the preparation and submission to the Department of an application by Fatima Hammoud for employment as a project development officer, which they both knew contained false information, with the intention that the false information would assist her to obtain a higher paying position within the then Department of Attorney General and Justice, and whereby Mr Andjic would improperly favour Fatima Hammoud in the selection process by recommending she be appointed to the position.
