Year: Status:

Wednesday 8 June 2011

The Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) is conducting an investigation into allegations that  between 1 August 2006 and 6 November 2009 Kim Hildebrand copied deposited plans, strata plans, crown plans and other information from the Spatial Information Exchange, a computer database administered by the Land & Property Management Authority ("the LPMA"), to her computer or data storage device, knowing the copying of such data was without the authority or consent of the LPMA.

It is also alleged that during this period, Ms Hildebrand provided Angus Algie and Greg Hildebrand with access to data contained on the database, knowing that such access would be used to copy deposited plans, strata plans, crown plans and other information to a computer or data storage device without the authority or consent of the LPMA.

The ICAC is also investigating allegations that between 1 May 2009 and 6 November 2009, Mr Algie and James Smith, Managing Directors of Addisons Valuation Services ("Addisons"), used the access Ms Hildebrand provided to the Spatial Information Exchange to copy, or directed Addisons employees to copy, approximately 74,000 strata plans from the database to a computer or data storage device belonging to Addisons, knowing the copying of such data was without the authority or consent of the LPMA.

As part of its investigation, the ICAC will hold a public inquiry starting at 10:00 am on Tuesday, 14 June 2011, at L21, 133 Castlereagh St., Sydney.

Persons claiming to be substantially and directly interested in this matter may seek leave to be represented at the inquiry, and are invited to contact Vasan Kanagasabai on (02) 8281-5999 to advise of their interest.

Members of the public with information relevant to the investigation are encouraged to provide it in writing at GPO Box 500, Sydney, NSW 2001, or by facsimile (02) 9264-5364. The ICAC will treat all information confidentially and has legislative powers to protect people who provide information to the Commission.
