In Part One we published Joanne Painter's story in The Age which described Darrouzet's attempt to conceal his company's payments to the AWU Workplace Reform Association.  Darrouzet told CFMEU national secretary that Thiess had made only one payment to the AWU - and that was for a study into the use of asbestos contaminated soil.


On Tuesday, 26 September 1995 Ian Cambridge made this diary entry.

Darrouzet knew all along about the AWU Workplace Reform Association.  He was the person who had negotiated the deal with Wilson for the sham Melbourne Water "consultancy".

On 13 February 1996 Darrouzet made this statement to Detective Sergeant Turnley, the investigating officer.

It's published here for the first time.
