Justice for whistleblower Bernard Collaery is as far away as ever – Michael West Media

Bernard Collaery featured

This Australian government has been acting as Putin does.

Top-secret evidence will be allowed in the prosecution of Bernard Collaery, the man who exposed Australian spying in East Timor, an ACT Supreme Court judge has ruled. Greg Barns examines the implications. Here’s a test. You have been charged with serious criminal offences and are facing a trial. The prosecution says it can use secret evidence against you. Evidence you and your lawyers are unable to see. Instead the court will appoint a special advocate who can look at the secret evidence and represent your interests. Which country are we in? Russia? China? Or in the United States with its infamous Guantanamo Bay military justice system.
