Sinodinos fronts ICAC for second time

Sinodinos fronts ICAC for second time

Federal Liberal Senator Arthur Sinodinos is due to give evidence again today, at the NSW Independent Commission Against Corruption.

Senator Sinodinos stood aside from his role as Assistant Treasurer in March, while ICAC investigated his time as director of Australian Water Holdings, which has strong links to disgraced former NSW minister Eddie Obeid.

He has been added to the witness list for today, as ICAC continues its investigations in to illegal political donations, in the NSW state election campaign in 2011.

It comes after CAC was told last week that Senator Sinodinos was present at a Liberal Party meeting, which discussed how to deal with a NSW ban on political donations from property developers.

Senator Sinodinos has continually denied any wrong-doing.

It is the second time he has appeared at ICAC, after first giving evidence in April, over his involvement in AWH, and allegations it falsely billed Sydney Water for expenses on an infrastructure project and used the money for executive salaries and political donations.
