Operation Coral public notice
Wednesday 10 March 2010
The Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) is conducting an investigation into corruption allegations involving a Department of Housing (now called Housing NSW) officer, Frank Garzaniti, and his associate, Frank Santomingo.
The allegations include that between 2001 and 2008, Mr Garzaniti failed to disclose an interest in Department of Housing contracts that were awarded to, or related to work that was carried out by, companies he and Mr Santomingo had interests in, which enabled himself and Mr Santomingo to benefit financially.
As part of its investigation, the ICAC will hold a public inquiry starting at 10:00 am on Tuesday, 16 March 2010, 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 Cassie Lee 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.
