The New South Wales (NSW) parliamentarian whose home and office were raided by the Australian Federal Police (AFP) will be reinstated into the Labor Party after it was revealed he is not a suspect in an ongoing investigation.
The records revealed he was not a suspect in an investigation.
“I have today asked that the suspension of the Hon. Shaoquett Moselmane MLC from the Australian Labor Party be lifted,” McKay told The Epoch Times.
“If new information arises in the future, I will be prepared to take appropriate steps,” she said.
“I warmly welcome Mr Moselmane back into the parliamentary Labor caucus and look forward to working with him,” she added.
Moselmane told The Epoch Times, “I am delighted to be back at parliament serving the people of NSW.”
“I am ready to continue the fight for our underprivileged, our multicultural and Aboriginal communities and to work hand in hand with my Labor colleagues and our Unions to fight for a fair wage structure and a safe work environment,” he said.
Moselmane was suspended from the Labor Party and forced to the crossbench, after revelations of the raid made national headlines.
Moselmane has maintained he was not a suspect and the raids were in connection to investigations into other individuals connected with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
The raids were launched by the AFP and Australian Security and Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) under the authority of the 2018 foreign interference laws.
The laws were rushed through Parliament in response to continuing reports of CCP interference in Australia’s domestic affairs.
Duong has been charged with allegedly “preparing for a foreign interference offence,” which attracts potential imprisonment penalties.
