Ex-minister faces forgery charge over $12m property buy: ICAC
Former NSW planning minister Tony Kelly faces the prospect of criminal charges for forgery after the Independent Commission Against Corruption found he acted corruptly over the purchase of the former union retreat Currawong.
Mr Kelly and a senior public servant, Warwick Watkins, were investigated over the purchase of Currawong for $12.2 million on behalf of the state government, less than a fortnight before this year’s state election.
The historic Pittwater property was bought by Mr Watkins, who was then chief executive of the Land and Property Management Authority, on March 15 from a property developer, Eco-Villages, when the government was in caretaker mode.
