information analyzed by forget it it’s fake. New South Wales Prime Minister Gladys Berejiklian’s resignation is not related to an alleged bribery scheme involving drugmakers Pfizer and AstraZeneca. Actually, She decided to step down after launching an investigation that sought to understand whether her secret relationship with the deputy created a conflict of interest in the government., Although resigned in October 2021, the events of his departure from the government occurred between 2012 and 2018 – hence, before the start of the pandemic.
In 2021, the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) launched an investigation to understand whether there was a conflict between the prime minister’s public duties and his private interests, including his secret relationship with former MP Daryl Maguire. . There was a suspicion that Maguire used their relationship to gain favors, such as an increase in the hospital budget. Pfizer and AstraZeneca were not involved in any of these cases. During the hearing, the commission cited phone calls between Gladys and Maguire as evidence.
During a phone call in 2018, the two talked about financing a hospital located in the Maguire area. The then deputy complained about the unit’s budget for 2019 and the prime minister said he would “fix”. “I’ll Tell Don” [tesoureiro Dominic Perrottet] to put it; He does what I say,” he said. Reports indicate that he may have asked the treasurer to put more than $100 million into the hospital.
in the second episode, the Prime Minister complains about an employee who was repairing the Riverina Music Conservatory, a cultural facility in the state. Maguire tells him not to fire up the server before the job is done. She replies, “Okay, ask him to fix it and after he fixes it, I’ll take him out.”
After the investigation began, the Prime Minister resigned and Said the decision was “not distracting”., because the focus of the government should be on the “well-being of our citizens” during the COVID-19 pandemic.
