Year: 2021 Status: Current

The Operation Paragon public inquiry adjourned on 23 June 2021 due to new public health restrictions. The inquiry will no longer sit on 24 or 25 June 2021.

It is proposed that the public inquiry will resume between 16 August 2021 and 18 August 2021 and may continue for a number of days thereafter.

The ICAC is investigating an allegation that, between 2009 and June 2019, then Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) employees Alexandre Dubois and Craig Steyn partially and/or dishonestly exercised their official functions by awarding in excess of $41 million in RMS contracts, to companies with which they were associated, in exchange for receiving benefits.
