Secret James Packer Crown Resorts documents to be made public

Details of a secret agreement between the NSW gambling regulator and James Packer’s Crown Resorts outlining measures to combat crime and corruption at the gambling mogul’s proposed casino at Barangaroo are set to be made public.

The NSW upper house privileges committee has supported the findings of an independent arbiter appointed by Parliament, Keith Mason, QC, that a privilege claim by Crown and the regulator should not apply to significant parts of the document.

Greens MP John Kaye intends to move a motion on Wednesday to have a largely unredacted version of the agreement tabled in Parliament on Thursday.

Crown and the Independent Liquor and Gaming Authority had argued that the release of the details would be commercially damaging to the casino company.

But last month, Mr Mason found many of the censored details should be made public.

The matter was referred to the privileges committee by Dr Kaye after the government indicated it would not support the uncensored document’s immediate release.
