Australian High Commissioner to Malaysia demonstrates why penetration of a country's judicial system is a matter of national interest: Lessons from DFAT as to why Zhu Minshen's license to issue LLBs in Australia is a matter of national security

The Australian High Commissioner to Malaysia, Andrew Goledzinowski has been busy in the past few weeks calling on senior members of Malaysia's judicial system. 
That he has chosen to put his visits (and that of other Australian diplomats) up on Twitter is a sign of the times, but it does not detract from the fact that these are targeted interventions into Malaysia's judicial system, presumably (one hopes, as an Australian) to further Australia's national interest.

In any case, Goledzinowski has demonstrated why penetration of a country's judicial system is of vital interest to any foreign nation. For that reason foreign nationals, and in particular entities with links to foreign governments, are not normally be granted access into a country's judicial system. 

So again, one must ask: 

Did the Law Council Australia and the NSW LPAB ignore ASIO advice in granting Zhu Minshen the right to grant LLB degrees, and entree into Australia's legal system?
