With a long-running Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) inquiry into mining tenders in the Bylong Valley in its final week, Ian Macdonald is expected to be asked about hand written notes found in the office of coal company investor Greg Jones.
The inquiry has heard allegations the notes are records of millions of dollars offered to Ian Macdonald as kickbacks for coal mining and forestry projects, and V8 Supercar races, when he was in parliament.
He is also expected to be asked about allegations that the granting of coal exploration licences in the Bylong Valley may have benefited the family of former Labor powerbroker Eddie Obeid.
The ICAC alleges he gave the Obeids inside knowledge that stood the family and various associates in line to profit $100 million dollars.
Eddie Obeid's son Edward Junior is also on today witness list.
This operation will examine Ian Macdonald's granting of a mining exploration licence to Doyles Creek Pty Ltd after allegedly only extending the tender to one company.
