ASIO raided the homes of NSW Labor MP Shaoquett Moselmane and his staffer John Zhang, as part of an investigation into foreign interference. The raid was captured by media after a tip-off. Mr Moselmane has expressed positive views of China, including praising its government. ASIO also raided Chinese journalists, but this was only revealed in September, after Australian journalists were rushed out of China. The reasons for the raid include their participation in a private chat group.
