Ah, Labor, via Domain:
Counter-espionage agency ASIO is conducting a sweeping investigation into allegations Chinese government agents have infiltrated the office of a NSW Labor politician to influence Australian politics.
Multiple sources aware of the foreign interference investigation said it was scrutinising the office of NSW Labor MP Shaoquett Moselmane as part of one of the most significant inquiries in recent ASIO history.
As part of the inquiry, the federal police raided properties linked to Mr Moselmane on Friday morning, searching for evidence to support allegations of a Chinese government plot unfolding on Australian soil.
The sources said if sufficient evidence was found, the inquiry could ultimately result in an Australian and world first: a prosecution for foreign interference offences arising from an alleged covert Chinese Communist Party plot to influence a serving politician.
…Security expert Neil Fergus said: “ASIO would not take this step lightly.”
Moselmane was hardly hiding his views, a few months ago he wrote for the East China Normal University about COVID-19:
“At the same time, the Australian government was hesitant, lacked direction, and responded slowly and confusingly.”
“We appreciate the serious attention, timely and effective countermeasures against the threat of coronavirus taken by the Chinese authorities and the Chinese community in Australia.”
But in his February piece, Mr Moselmane savages Australia’s “mainstream media” for having “publicly played racist cards, offending and insulting many Australian citizens, especially Chinese residents” in actions that “further deepened the already great suffering of the victim”.
“Today, the obsolete scum of ‘white Australia’ is once again flooding, and the theory of yellow fever has once again surfaced,” he wrote.
If his office has been “infiltrated”, they haven’t done a great job of teaching Moselmane how to go about it.
Poor hapless LAbor.
