Trung Luu spent 24 years investigating crime scenes as a sworn member of Victoria Police. In 2022 Trung was elected to parliament as the Liberal Party’s first Vietnamese MP in Victoria.

He travelled to Australia by boat as a young refugee and has since built a life and family in the western suburbs of Melbourne. In this sit down we discussed the Liberal Party’s attempted expulsion of Moira Deeming MP, the refugee perspective of other refugees arriving by boat and ‘skipping the queue’, freedom of speech and privacy in Australia and the banning of certain people and subjects.
