Ray Hadley names and shames board of directors over ‘pure act of bastardry’
Oatlands Golf Club’s six-storey apartment complex development has come under fire after the same club rejected a memorial for car crash victims.
Ray Hadley blasted the proposal for 193 apartments across five buildings as out of character and “totally and utterly inappropriate” for the area.
The development has been years in the making he revealed, with 17 reports to date detailing the plans, meaning the club’s memorial rejection was likely more to do with the future apartments than the current occupants.
“There’s a lack of honesty and transparency from the Oatlands Golf Club.
“They came up with a whole range of excuses.”
The board of directors’ decision to decline the Abdallah and Sakr families’ original memorial and instead offer a much smaller one was “a pure act of bastardry,” Ray said.
Ray named the directors, calling on them to come forward and confirm their individual stance on the issue.

Lakemba MP Jihad Dib has advocated for the family to have the memorial built.
He told Ray Hadley it was “not only a surprise, but an absolute shock” to learn the true reason behind the club’s rejection was “an incredibly selfish act”.
“There was such a disingenuous engagement by the golf club through this whole process.
“It seems that the whole nation was mourning, and they’ve got ulterior motives.
“It almost seems to me like when I would talk with them, it was like an inconvenience to them that this tragedy happened on their ground.”
