The ICAC investigated allegations that Leslie Reynolds, a former project manager at the Department of Justice, received corrupt payments and benefits from Khader George Ghamrawi and his wife, Samantha Boyle, the principals of G&S Building Group Pty Ltd and Global Metals Works Pty Ltd.

In its report on the investigation, made public on 3 August 2017, the Commission makes serious corrupt conduct findings against Mr Reynolds and Mr Ghamrawi. The Commission is of the opinion that the advice of the Director of Public Prosecutions should be obtained with respect to the prosecution of Mr Reynolds, Mr Ghamrawi and Ms Boyle for various offences.

The Commission has made 13 recommendations to the Department of Justice to prevent the type of conduct exposed in the investigation from recurring.
