Joe Hockey denies wrongdoing over money linked to Obeid

TREASURER Joe Hockey is denying any wrongdoing after a Liberal fundraising group refunded $22,000 to a water firm linked to disgraced Labor politician Eddie Obeid

The North Sydney Forum - which raises money for Mr Hockey electorate - paid back the donation to Australian Water Holdings this week.

It comes as AWH is investigated by the New South Wales Independent Commission Against Corruption.

ICAC's calling of former chairman turned Assistant Treasurer Arthur Sinodinos as a witness led to him standing aside from his ministerial position.

In relation to the money returned by the North Sydney Forum, Mr Hockey said in a statement he had never received nor returned money to AWH.
