Australia: Gladys Berejiklian called to give evidence at corruption commission inquiry into former MP

Gladys Berejiklian has said she is pleased to be giving evidence at an NSW Independent Commission Against Corruption investigation into disgraced former Liberal MP Daryl Maguire.

An ICAC witness list issued on Thursday revealed the premier had been summonsed and is the only person scheduled to appear on Monday when the anti-corruption body’s hearing enters its fourth week.

“I’m pleased to be assisting with those inquiries,” she told reporters. “And it wouldn’t be appropriate for me to elaborate.”

Maguire was forced to quit the Berejiklian government in 2018 after a separate ICAC inquiry heard evidence he sought payments to help broker deals for property developers.
