The electoral office of NSW Labor MP Noreen Hay has been raided by the Australian Federal Police (AFP) over enrolment fraud allegations.

AFP officers executed a search warrant on her office on Crown St, Wollongong, on Wednesday.

The AFP told the ABC it had received a referral from the Australian Electoral Commission on December 8 last year “relating to allegations of enrolment fraud”.

A spokesperson said it would be inappropriate to comment further on the ongoing investigation.

Opposition Leader Luke Foley’s office said Ms Hay had informed him of the search.

“We understand the Member and her office have offered the AFP every assistance in the investigation,” a spokesman said in a statement.

“We have asked for further information which we anticipate will be provided tomorrow.”

Ms Hay has not responded to repeated requests for comment.
