Four more complaints against Stewart

Four more allegations against sacked New South Wales frontbencher Tony Stewart have emerged in the past four days.

A former Bankstown area commander, Superintendent Dave Darcy, has complained that the dumped minister threatened to name him in Parliament last year if he charged an associate and Labor donor over the operations of a security firm.

Yesterday, Greens MP Lee Rhiannon also said she had complaints about Mr Stewart from two former detective sergeants, who said the Bankstown MP threatened them to stop investigating certain constituents in 1995 and 1996.

The allegations were referred to the Independent Commission Against Corruption.

Yesterday afternoon, Ms Rhiannon said she had received [an] allegation of intimidating behaviour, this time from another female former public servant.

The MP said the speech writer told her she felt intimidated by comments Mr Stewart made to her about material she had prepared eight years ago.

The woman neither wanted to elaborate on her claims nor identify herself to the media.


Minister dumped for 'abusing staffer'

Suspended New South Wales minister Tony Stewart will be returned to the backbenches for inappropriate behaviour.
