Premier Nathan Rees today announced Justice David Ipp will be the Government's nominee to become the next Commissioner of the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC).

Justice Ipp was a barrister in South Africa before emigrating to Australia in 1981. He has served part-time in Fiji's Supreme Court and has been a public critic of overly long and complex litigation.

"Justice Ipp has a distinguished career serving as a judge of the NSW Court of Appeal and as a Supreme Court judge in Western Australia," said Premier Rees.

"Justice Ipp is a very highly regarded member of our judicial system and he will be an excellent candidate to follow the high standards set by Commissioner Cripps.

A panel was established consisting of the Directors General of key government agencies and the Chair of the Law Reform Commission James Wood to recommend a new Commissioner.

The nomination was endorsed by Cabinet today and the Premier has written to the Joint Parliamentary Committee on the ICAC with the nomination.

Under the ICAC Act the parliamentary committee has up to 44 days to review the nomination.

The appointment is due to commence in November 2009 when Commissioner Cripps five-year term expires.
