Property development giant Yuhu is pushing ahead with its Australian projects despite its founder being refused entry back into the country.

Chinese billionaire and Beijing’s former top lobbyist in Australia Huang Xiangmo had, as recently as December, handed over the reins to his 24-year-old son Jimmy Jiquan Huang who assumed the role of chairman.

The Age and Sydney Morning Herald reported Mr Huang snr was fighting to return to his $12.8 million Mosman mansion after he was notified by Australian officials while out of the country that his long-stalled application to become an Australian citizen had been turned down.
