The Australian Federal Police have conducted a series in raids in Melbourne tonight, including at the office of Labor frontbencher and former Communications Minister Stephen Conroy, in regards to a slew of leaks pertaining to the National Broadband Network – and how poorly it’d been operated by the Coalition.
Another raid was undertaken at the home of a staffer for the party’s current Shadow Minister for Communications Jason Clare.
When the papers leaked in February, Fairfax ran some scathing stories detailing how far the roll-out was lagging behind. Not the kind of thing you’d want floating around when you’re seeking re-election, really.

You don’t need a secret document to know the NBN is rooted.
