Western Sydney Regional Illegal Dumping Squad – allegations concerning former Western Sydney Regional Illegal Dumping Squad (RIDS) officer (Operation Scania)

The ICAC investigated allegations that a former Western Sydney Regional Illegal Dumping Squad (WS RIDS) enforcement officer, Craig Izzard, exercised his public official functions partially and dishonestly by receiving corrupt payments to ignore illegal dumping in areas under his supervision, or to impede investigations by other WS RIDS officers.

In its report on the investigation, made public on 21 June 2017, the Commission makes findings of serious corrupt conduct against Mr Izzard, Nosir Kabite and Ibrahim Beydoun.

The ICAC is of the opinion that the advice of the Director of Public Prosecutions should be obtained with respect to the prosecution of Mr Izzard, Mr Kabite and Mr Beydoun for various offences.

The Commission has made 15 corruption prevention recommendations to improve the regulatory response and to address other issues and concerns raised in this investigation.
