Sinodinos: The man least likely

Video will begin in 5 seconds.

A NSW corruption inquiry rattled federal politics this week, as Assistant Treasurer senator Arthur Sinodinos has stepped down from his front bench role. Fairfax journalist Kate McClymont explains how a private water company, both Labor and Liberal power brokers and Sinodinos are connected and what lies ahead for the senator.

“It’s Arthur Sinodinos! Of course I was comforted.” That was how one investor felt in May 2010, when Sinodinos was a much admired Liberal icon whose wise counsel had been an essential part of Prime Minister John Howard’s success. At the time, Sinodinos – out of Canberra and back in Sydney – was chairman of Australian Water Holdings and the investor, Rod de Aboitiz, who had put $1 million into the company, was ringing the alarm bells over the company’s spiralling debts and astronomical wage bill. At the Independent Commission Against Corruption this week, de Aboitiz told the hearing Sinodinos had assured him ”the board was on top of it”.

But behind the scenes Sinodinos was under a lot of pressure. He was a man needing to make money, and to make it fast. The Newcastle-born Sinodinos, 57, married late in life. He was in his forties when he met his glamorous bride-to-be Elizabeth, almost two decades younger, at their Greek Orthodox Church. Sinodinos’s sedate, solid world soon disappeared. The couple rented a Rose Bay house with panoramic views of Sydney Harbour for almost $100,000 a year; leased luxury European cars; and three children followed – as did a whirlwind of social engagements.

Sinodinos didn’t need to do the maths to work out that a political career was never going to support this heady lifestyle.

This perhaps explains why the normally cautious Sinodinos ignored warning signs to accept Liberal fundraiser Nick Di Girolamo’s invitation to become a director in a small infrastructure company, Australian Water Holdings, on the handsome salary of $200,000 per year for what turned out to be about two hours’ work a week.

This ill-considered choice has cost Sinodinos dearly. There is no evidence that the Senator has been corrupt but his reputation as a fiscal mastermind and astute manager has been unravelling daily as the ICAC dissects the breathtaking corruption at the heart of a company of which Sinodinos was a director for three years, until he joined federal parliament in 2011.

The first alarm bell should have rung as soon as he arrived in late 2008. On AWH’s payroll was Eddie Obeid jnr, the son of the controversial NSW Labor powerbroker Eddie Obeid. Sinodinos claims he was unaware that during his time at AWH the Obeids acquired a 30 per cent stake, using $3 million from another corrupt deal.
