ICAC probes alleged RMS kickbacks

The NSW ICAC will hold an inquiry into two former Roads and Maritime Services employees accused of taking kickbacks from $41m worth of RMS contracts.

Peter Hall QC

Alexandre Dubois and Craig Steyn are alleged to have engaged in the behaviour for ten years leading up to June 2019.

The men allegedly dishonestly or partially exercised their official functions by awarding more $41 million in RMS contracts to companies they were associated with in exchange for receiving benefits.

ICAC Chief Commissioner Peter Hall QC will preside at the public inquiry which will begin on May 10 and run for six weeks.

Counsel Assisting the Commission will be Jason Downing SC and Caroline Spruce.

A witness list for the first week of the inquiry will be published closer to the opening of proceedings.

The ICAC will live stream proceedings.

  1. I should also look at the unnecessary signposts on the roads that the contractor charges the government . i,e no stopping put on dual carriageway wery 50 mtrs or so, when a simple double yellow line painted is the norm.

  2. Back in October 2020 your article on the threat to Funding of NSW Watchdog agencies was under threat. A back door way of diluting the independence of ICAC and other agencies.

    We see the need for these agencies here again with this RMS case

    But sections of the Government don’t want the continued embarrassment of being Caught.
    Coincides with having the Premier before ICAC. Pick the Governments term of Office
    as to which premier it is!
    Yet this is a clear message that NSW treats gross slips in Integrity and outright Corrupt behavior seriously

    Invaluable to build Public confidence in our system of Government!
