Corrupt: ICAC wants former Labor MPs charged

FORMER NSW Resources Minister Ian MacDonald and Labor powerbroker Eddie Obeid have been found guilty of corrupt conduct.

In its report to the Speaker of the Lower House this morning, The Independent Commission Against Corruption recommended the pair be referred to the Director of Public Prosecutions over claims they rigged mining leases.

The ICAC found Mr MacDonald accepted the services of a prostitute in return for arranging meetings with businessman Ron Medich and the state's energy executives.

The  corruption watchdog  is delivering three reports on a series of inquires held over the past six months at NSW Parliament House.

Operation Indus looked at the circumstances surrounding the sale of a car to then MLC Eric Roozendaal by Mr Obeid's son Moses.

According to the Herald, Mr Roozendaal has been found not-guilty of corrupt conduct.

The major investigation - Operation Jasper investigated whether a decision made in 2008 by Mr Macdonald to open a mining area in the Bylong Valley for coal exploration, was influenced by Mr Obeid.

The reports have been tabled in parliament and are expected to be released by 11.10am
