Operation Clara was an investigation by the Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission (IBAC) into the alleged corrupt conduct of Mr Theo Theophanous in his role on the board of the Victorian Planning Authority (VPA). In January 2020, IBAC commenced Operation Clara to determine if a former Victorian Government Minister misused his public position on the board of the VPA to favour the Australian Education City (AEC) consortium in their East Werribee project proposal, or attempted to improperly influence public officers involved in the East Werribee project.

Wednesday 12 Oct 2022 Corruption risks associated with donations and lobbying
Donations and lobbying can be used to gain privileged access to decision-makers within a party, especially if it is in government, by elevating a donor's or lobbyist's profile. Candidates and political parties also obtain donations through fundraising activities, requests for in-kind support, direct payments and via associated entities. Together these factors have the potential to compromise a member of parliament or councillor once elected.
