Operation Nickel public notice
Wednesday 2 October 2013
The Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) is investigating allegations that Christopher Binos, a former heavy vehicle competency-based assessor, while acting on behalf of Roads and Maritime Services, between 2012 and 2013 solicited benefits from applicants for heavy vehicle licences.
The ICAC is also investigating allegations that, since at least 2012, Mr Binos has been signing log books certifying applicants as competent to drive a heavy vehicle without the applicants completing the necessary assessments, in exchange for cash payment.
As part of its investigation, the ICAC will hold a public inquiry starting at 10:00 am on Wednesday 16 October 2013 at Level 7, 133 Castlereagh Street, 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 Ms 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.
