The Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) is set to hold a public inquiry as part of its investigation into potential conflicts of interest involving the hiring of IT contractors into Sydney University.
The ICAC said in a statement yesterday that the inquiries will provide information for an investigation into Atilla Demiralay and his associates, who between January 2007 and May 2011 allegedly engaged a recruitment firm to hire contractors in which Demiralay and his wife both held an interest; namely Succuro Recruitment.
The commission will also hear claims that Demiralay and his associates allegedly hired contractors based on personal connections with the candidates rather than on merit.
Fairfax reported last year that Demiralay resigned in June as the ICAC kicked off its investigation.
The hearings are set to span over four days in Sydney, starting 20 March.
