On Friday, federal agents under the direction of counter espionage authority ASIO, conducted an extraordinary raid on the home and office of New South Wales Labor MP, Shaoquett Moselmane. Investigators were searching for evidence of any involvement by Moselmane in a plot by China to interfere in Australia’s political system. It’s thought to be the first time a serving member of an Australian parliament has been investigated over allegations of being influenced by a hostile foreign state. Reporting for 60 MINUTES, The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age, Nick McKenzie was there for the raid and says the agents clearly knew what they were looking for. McKenzie, who for months has also been observing Moselmane’s pro-China activities, warns this operation will have far-reaching consequences both here and in Beijing.
