Amanda Vanstone helped Mafioso after mates paid thousands to the Liberal Party

Amanda Vanstone's decision has been criticised by Italian authorities.Yep, according to this story in The Age, Australia’s ambassador to Italy, Amanda Vanstone allowed a Mafia crime figure remain in Australia
after his supporters donated thousands of dollars to the Liberal Party.

According to the story in The Age, until Vanstone’s intervention, Madafferi had spent nine years
fighting moves by Australian authorities to deport him after he
overstayed his visa. His lawyers cited mental illness and the fact that
he had an Australian wife and four young children among their arguments
for allowing him to remain.

Late last week, Ms Vanstone defended her decision, saying she had had concerns for Madafferi’s mental health.
