Immigration Minister Kevin Andrew’s statement has been overshadowed by the leak of a transcript to Crikey proving top level intervention in the interrogation of Dr Mohamed Haneef:

Kevin Andrews: You’re caught in a trap
You can’t walk out
Because I need you too much baby.

Dr Haneef: So, if an old friend I know
Drops by to say hello
Would I still see suspicion in your eyes?

Why can’t you see
What you’re doing to me
When you don’t believe a word I say?

When honey, you know
I’ve never lied to you
Mmm yeah, yeah.

We can’t go on together
With suspicious minds

And we can’t build our dreams
On suspicious minds.
