Former ALP senator Sam Dastyari arrived at a partial bicycle to provide evidence of suspicious donations to NSW Labor at the ICAC probe.

Mr. Dastyari – a former state party general secretary – was involved in the scandal this week by now-suspended Labor boss Kaila Murnain, who told her in 2016 to tell the party's lawyers about the possible & # 39; straw & # 39; donations.

The former politician, who was forced out of parliament because of his own Chinese connections, cycled with a blue helmet to the Independent Commission Against Corruption in Sydney.

He could get into trouble again, because cycling on a footpath in New South Wales is illegal.

According to Transport for NSW, only children under the age of 16 may ride on a footpath. The fine for others is $ 106.

Mr Dastyari spoke to reporters on Thursday while gesturing wildly with his bicycle helmet, which he put on and put on again twice.

& # 39; I have always given Kaila what I thought was the best, most honest and fearless advice, & # 39; he said, adding that the & # 39; insidious nature of donations & # 39; had turned out.

He said he & # 39; empathy & # 39; felt for Mrs. Murnain before he assured the assembled reporters that he would re-enter the media after he had provided his evidence.

& # 39; I have been running to camera & # 39; s for a lifetime – I'm not going to run away from them now & # 39 ;, he said.

Dastyari then put on his helmet again – for the third time – and snapped it on when he entered ICAC headquarters.

He then told the investigation: & # 39; I gave very powerful, powerful advice (to Mrs. Murnain) that you should see the lawyers. & # 39;

The committee is investigating whether Huang Xiangmo – now being banned from Australia – was the real source of $ 100,000 donated by 12 people at a 2015 Chinese Friends of Labor dinner.

Dastyari – whose connection with Huang partly led to his own political downfall – believes that the only way out could be for the party to ban donations in NSW.

& # 39; Enough is enough, maybe it's time to take a serious look at a real, full state ban on private donations because we've experienced this nonsense enough, & # 39; he told ICAC on Thursday.
