GEORGE SEITZ (1941-2015), Member of the Victorian State Parliament for Keilor 1982-2010 (Australian Labor Party). 

George Seitz, Croat Australian and a long time supporter of the Australian Macedonian community has sadly passed away.

George gave me a lot of assistance when as a young reporter in the 1980s I began to investigate the activities of Yugoslav intelligence (UDBa /SDB) in Australia. His tips and names of key players led me to later find a lot of ASIO material in the National Archives of Australia.

He gave a lot of support to the late George Kostrevski, who established the independent AUSTRALIAN Macedonian Welfare Council, away from Belgrade's front organisation the Australian Yugoslav Welfare Society, sponsored by another Labor MP Dr Harry Jenkins senior and Labor Federal MP turned Yugoslav intelligence operative Lewis Kent. see link to Kent story here & here
