Commenting on the reopened investigation, incoming foreign minister and deputy Liberal leader Julie Bishop said: ''It is vital that the Department of Immigration thoroughly investigates all allegations of migration fraud to ensure there is integrity in our migration system.''
The supposed couples never spent a night together and Ms Clague had two of her three children with Mr Shultz while she was supposed to be married to Mr Xu and he was married to Ms Liu. The Australian couple later wed.
The department re activated its investigation into Ms Liu and her former Chinese boyfriend after Fairfax Media in April unearthed the identities of a young Australian couple who agreed to marry the pair in order for them to obtain permanent residency.
