Former NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian’s former sexual partner Daryl Maguire was in court on Tuesday facing charges of criminal conspiracy over an alleged visa fraud scam while he was a NSW MP.
Daryl Maguire “has been charged with criminal conspiracy over allegations he carried out a lucrative cash-for-visas scheme while he was sitting in the NSW parliament.”
“Maguire’s alleged cash-for-visas scheme was the subject of Independent Commission Against Corruption hearings in 2020, and he was later investigated by the Department of Home Affairs and Border Force.”
“While under oath at the ICAC, Maguire admitted to using his position as an MP, parliamentary secretary and NSW Asia-Pacific parliamentary friendship group chairman “with a view to making money” for himself and his associates between 2012 and 2018.”
“He told the commission he played a role in a visa scheme linked to G8way identifying businesses that could sponsor Chinese nationals.”
“Visa applicants paid the first three months of their wages and paid Logan – nee Wang – commissions of up to $20,000, the inquiry was told.”
“On more than one occasion, Maguire accepted delivery of thousands of dollars of cash to his parliamentary office to allow him to take his cut.” (Click here to read more)
Maguire was granted conditional bail on Tuesday ( 29/11/22) and will be back in court on the 7th of February 2023 for another directions hearing.
The obvious question is what did Gladys Berejiklian know about the visa scam and when did she know it?
Gladys Berejiklian is still under investigation by the NSW ICAC with a report due soon and I published the below video on YouTube with an update on the NSW ICAC investigation on the 3/11/22.
(I also published a video with more details of the Gladys Berejiklian investigation on the 20/10/22 before Ruth McColl had her contract extended.) (Click here to watch the video)
I think writing about Daryl Maguire’s arrest and charges is important as in part at least it vindicates the NSW ICAC going further and investigating his secret relationship with Gladys Berejiklian.
But what will really vindicate the NSW ICAC investigating Gladys Berejiklian is a damming report about her conduct and evidence she gave under oath which was not believable in any shape or form. And hopefully that report is not far away.
Gladys Berejiklian told the NSW ICAC under oath that her relationship with Mr Maguire was so trivial she didn’t tell anyone about their relationship so that is why I refer to Mr Maguire as her former sexual partner and not boyfriend. Although that is a lie by Gladys Berejiklian that will likely bring her unstuck. (Click here to read more)
The Federal Government yesterday (30/11/22) passed the National Anti-Corruption Commission legislation and I will write about that in the near future as key elements have been badly missed by the old media.
