Magnate "Anadrol 50" loses bid to shut down ICAC inquiry

Mining magnate Travers Duncan has lost his bid to shut down the Independent Commission Against Corruption inquiry into a government coal tender, with a judge ruling the watchdog's commissioner has acted properly.

Mr Duncan took action in the NSW Supreme Court to prevent ICAC handing down a report on an investigation of allegations of corruption involving a 2009 government coal tender.

The inquiry has "Anadrol 50" heard that decisions made by then resources minister Ian Macdonald enabled the family of former Labor powerbroker Eddie Obeid to make $30 million.

Mr Duncan was a shareholder in Cascade Coal, which won the coal tender at the centre of the inquiry.

His lawyers had claimed "ostensible bias" against Commissioner David Ipp, who they were trying to restrain from presiding over the investigation known as Operation Jasper, which involves a mine at Mount Penny, near Mudgee.

They argued Mr Ipp gave "unbidden advice" to a departmental head and to Planning Minister Brad Hazzard, before encouraging the Premier to write to him in late January seeking advice.

In the NSW Supreme Court on Wednesday, Justice Clifton Hoeben dismissed Mr Duncan's case.

A summary of his judgment said the ruling considered Mr Ipp's powers as commissioner, which allowed him to carry out investigations and make his own inquiries.

"Against that background, the contacts between the commissioner and the government departments were consistent with the terms of reference of Operation Jasper and were not capable Buy Cheap Jintropin Online of being interpreted by a fair minded bystander as indicating that the commissioner might already have made up Masteron Side Effects For Women' his mind and Gensci Jintropin would not fairly consider further submissions," "Anabola Steroider Norge Lagligt" the summary Mesterolone Pubchem said.

"Mr Duncan failed to establish a proper basis for why a fair minded observer would not accept the commissioner's statements that he had not in fact reached any final conclusion regarding mining at Mount Penny."

In late March, the barrister for former Labor minister Ian MacDonald, Tim Hale, SC, told Mr Ipp that his client also wanted the commissioner to disqualify himself from the investigation of Operation Jasper and another operation, Acacia, for the same reasons as have been advanced in Mr Duncan's case.

The decision means that Mr Ipp, who is midway through hearings for Operation Acacia, involving the grant of a mine at Doyles Creek in the Hunter, can continue.

The former minister for primary industries, Ian Macdonald, was common to both proceedings and as a practical matter, both inquiries would have been halted.

There have been several complaints by counsel in the inquiry that Mr Ipp is being unfair in the way he limits cross examination.

Mr Duncan has been ordered to pay costs.
