ICAC’s website crashes less than an hour before Gladys Berejiklian is expected to give evidence

Drama as ICAC website CRASHES as Gladys Berejiklian gives bombshell evidence to the corruption inquiry – forcing an adjournment

ICAC’s website crashed as Gladys Berejiklian gave bombshell evidence about her relationship with Daryl Maguire to the anti-corruption inquiry.

Those trying to access Independent Commission Against Corruption’s home page were met with a ‘500 – server error’ message on Friday morning.

‘An error has occurred on the site, we apologise for the inconvenience,’ the message said.

The technical issues came as the former NSW premier told the state corruption watchdog she would not have revealed her secret relationship with Mr Maguire to her colleagues even now.

Opening evidence on Friday, ICAC counsel assisting Scott Robertson began with a killer question.

NSW premier Gladys Berejiklian appeared before the state’s anti-corruption inquiry for the first time on Friday

‘If you were able to have your time again would you disclose your close personal relationship with Mr Maguire?’ Mr Robertson asked.

Ms Berejiklian responded she didn’t feel it was a commitment she could share with her parents, Arsha and Krikor, or her sisters.

‘I didn’t feel there was a sufficient significance to be able to do that in terms of significance.’

Outside the hearing, Ms Berejiklian said she will tell the Independent Commission Against Corruption she will ‘strenuously stress’ that she has always put the interests and her ‘love and support’ for the people of NSW first.  

Her day at ICAC has finally come – after six months of private hearings, two weeks of public hearings and 500 pieces of evidence.
