Corruption inquiry hears exposive evidence

A CORRUPTION inquiry into claims former NSW Labor ministers were involved in a multi-million-dollar mining licence scandal is expected to continue into the New Year.

Already, the ICAC inquiry has heard explosive evidence suggesting former resources minister Ian MacDonald may have granted mining exploration licences in areas where ALP powerbroker Eddie Obeid's family owned significant portions of land.

The inquiry began at the end of October and continues in Sydney before ICAC Commissioner David Ipp.
