The ALP in Australia is fast becoming a joke with one ratbag after the next being charged for corruption offences.
If we ever needed confirmation for the establishment of anÂ IndependentÂ Commission Against Corruption we only need to look at what they are uncovering in NSW with unions, politicians and other bent ratbags.
Former top NSW bureaucrat Warwick Watkins has been charged over a land deal that involved former Labor minister Tony Kelly, who has also been recommended for prosecution.
The corruption watchdog announced on Wednesday that the former chief executive of the Land and Property Management Authority (LPMA) has been charged with four offences relating to the LPMA’s $12.2 million purchase in 2011 of a union-owned retreat in Sydney’s northern beaches.
“Mr Watkins is being prosecuted for two counts of using a false document … and two counts of attempting to mislead the commission,” the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) said on its website.
He will appear in Downing Centre Local Court on July 2.
