Frydenberg Targeted in Melbourne

Posters of Treasurer Jewish MP Josh Frydenberg in his Melbourne electorate of Kooyong have been defaced with anti-Semitic slogans and drawings.

Prime minister Scott Morrison told reporters on Saturday the vandalism was “appalling”, and called for anyone with information about the matter to cooperate with authorities.

“This is about crimes and hate … this should have no place in our elections, absolutely no place,” Mr Morrison said.

Mr Frydenberg tweeted his abhorrence to the “cowardly and criminal act” and said the incident was “about a broader and disturbing trend in society of anti-semitism and intolerance”.

“The latest act of vandalism in Kooyong using Nazi symbols on a billboard of mine is an insult to every victim of the Holocaust and Australian servicemen and women who fought against Nazi tyranny”.
