All about corruption allegations against Gladys Berejiklian

Gladys Berejiklian came under public scrutiny when the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) declared it was looking into whether Berejiklian violated the public trust or promoted corruption during her romantic affiliation with Maguire who served as the local member for Wagga Wagga in southern NSW. The investigation was launched into Maguire, who was accused of abusing his position in Parliament to advance his commercial interests. His resignation occurred after he confessed to a separate Inquiry by the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) that he solicited money for a property deal.

Berejiklian’s connection with Maguire remained a well-guarded secret until she testified in front of an ICAC inquiry in October 2020, revealing she had been in a “close personal relationship” with him for several years. It listened to taped phone talks between the two throughout their five-year covert romance, according to the investigation. The committee also heard that Berejiklian was aware that Maguire was collecting commissions for brokering property deals.

All this evidence has led Gladys Berejiklian to quit her position as the premier of New South Wales.
