"The Committee should release publicly the information provided by ICAC and immediately cease the unfounded attacks on the Commission," said Mr Parker.

“It would be outrageous if the Committee Chair is now shopping for legal advice to withhold release of these important documents.

"The only way to proceed with this inquiry is for the Committee to publicly release the documents and the telephone intercept recordings, so the public can form its own opinion. Anything else will be seen as a continuation of a vendetta against the corruption-fighting work of ICAC.

"The Committee cannot make a public judgment on the performance of ICAC based primarily on ICAC Inspector David Levine’s controversial report without releasing publicly the information it has now been given from the ICAC Commissioner.

“Commissioner Latham made strong comments that Mr Levine’s report was "infected by the denial of procedural fairness" and so fundamentally flawed that it should be disregarded by the Committee. This raises serious questions about Mr Levine's credibility and political agenda.

"It was startling and concerning that the Committee gagged Commissioner Latham when she requested to speak briefly before the hearing was shut down," said Mr Parker.
