Press Release

TONY ABBOTT’S ALLEGATIONS

Minister Abbott has in Question Time today made a number of inferences which I believe may relate to me.

Although I have met Mr Tan, I firmly advised him that his migration matters should be handled by professional migration agents. I gave him no migration advice.

In the lead up to the 2001 election, I was involved in the Hindmarsh election campaign. The campaign conducted a number of major raffles in accordance with SA law. A Mr Hadchiti of Universal Lionshare Pty Ltd contributed to such raffles. All activities were conducted in accordance with advice received from relevant party officers.

I will happily assist the AEC if it enquires into this matter.
