CPN Lunchtime Seminar: An overview of and case studies from the NSW ICAC’s investigation into Canterbury City Council (Operation Dasha).
In March 2021, the NSW Independent Commission Against Corruption released its report on Operation Dasha, which investigated allegations of corrupt conduct concerning the former Canterbury City Council.

This investigation looked into the conduct of a number of public officials including former councillors, the former general manager, and the former director of city planning. The allegations were that they dishonestly and/or partially exercised their official functions in relation to planning proposals and/or applications in the Canterbury City Council local area.

The ICAC also investigated the circumstances surrounding the appointment of the director of city planning.

In this presentation, Senior Corruption Prevention Officer (Planning) Antony Pedroza will provide an overview of Operation Dasha, and work through several elements of the investigation to highlight key corruption prevention issues and lessons to be learnt.
