New South Wales Premier Chris Minns has become the latest political figure whose office was attacked by vandals who spray-painted the word “murder” and covered the building in red paint overnight.

Pictures from the crime scene document the extent of the vandalism: The office in Kogarah was sprayed with red paint overnight and covered in graffiti reading “murder”.

It is believed that pro-Palestinian protesters are responsible for the attack.

New South Wales Police have set up a crime scene at the Prime Minister’s office and are investigating.

Mr Minns has since hit back, accusing the vandals of having a certain “arrogance” for breaking the law and spraying graffiti on the offices of political officials across the country.

“Ultimately, it’s obviously just a waste of time and money and it’s annoying,” he said.

“But not much more.”

Mr Minns said the Gaza conflict was a complex issue, but the State Government’s focus had always been on social cohesion and peace in NSW.

“I am not responsible for places in the world, especially the Middle East,” he said.

“I am responsible for peace here in Sydney and in this state and that has always been our approach to this complex issue.”

“Yes, you have a right, an absolute right to protest, but you also have a responsibility to treat other people who live in this city with respect.”

Earlier this year, pro-Palestinian supporters disrupted a session of the New South Wales Parliament, which had to be closed briefly before being cleared by security.

They broke out into chants such as: “Shame on you, Chris Minns”, “Sanctions against Israel” and “Labour’s hands are red”.

Protesters also caused chaos at the Mardi Gras parade in Sydney when they invaded the parade in front of the Prime Minister of New South Wales. Eight people were arrested.
