ICAC accused of ‘undermining the fabric of justice’ after sparking Premier’s resignation

ICAC has been accused of “undermining democracy” following the summoning of former premier Gladys Berejiklian to front a public inquiry.

Northern beaches MP Jason Falinksi told Jim Wilson Ms Berejiklian’s resignation announcement has left him “numb”, and shredded the Commission’s actions.

“How many more times does the Independent Commission Against Corruption in NSW have to undermine our democracy, until people start taking either its abolition or its major reform sensibly?

“Over and over, it has exceeded its legislative power to involve itself in politics.”

He accused ICAC of refusing to undertake investigations under Labor premiers Bob Carr and Kristina Keneally while they were in office, and ending Ms Berejiklian’s career without any admission of guilt.

“They undermine the very fabric of what justice and democracy is in the state of New South Wales.

“There’s no presumption of innocence here!”
