Greens NSW anti-corruption spokesperson Jamie Parker MP has called on NSW Labor to refer explosive corruption allegations made by Labor MP Tania Mihailuk late last night in NSW Parliament to the Independent Commission Against Corruption.
Ms Mihailuk questioned NSW Labor’s decision to preselect Canterbury-Bankstown mayor Khal Asfour to their upper house ticket in light of his “actions in furthering the interests of developers and identities, in particular Eddie Obeid.”

Greens NSW anti-corruption spokesperson Jamie Parker MP says:
“These allegations are alarming, especially coming from a sitting Labor member of Parliament. NSW Labor must refer these explosive allegations to the ICAC today.
“After 12 years in opposition Obeid’s tentacles are still deep inside the NSW Labor Party.
“Ms Mihailuk has repeatedly raised her concerns with the leadership of the NSW Labor Party and has been ignored. Making these allegations on the floor of the Parliament shows Ms Mihailuk has realised NSW Labor is completely uninterested in tackling claims of corruption in their own party.
“Ms Mihailuk has described the NSW Labor as a party more interested in covering up alleged corruption than investigating it,” he says.
