December 04, 2017

Australian Attorney-General George Brandis has prepared foreign interference legislation.

Foreign donations to political parties and laws targeting spies and foreign interference in Australia's democratic institutions will be part of new counter-intelligence legislation expected to be introduced to parliament his week.

"The legislation will strengthen and modernise a range of offences including espionage, sabotage and treason," Attorney-General George Brandis told Fairfax on Monday.

"It will also introduce - for the first time - a range of offences criminalising acts of foreign interference."
