Oil Under Troubled Water description

In May 2018, barrister and former ACT Attorney General Bernard Collaery was charged under the Intelligence Services Act.  His crime?  Representing the East Timorese Government in their case against Australia in the Hague, a case seeking to nullify the Timor Sea Treaty after whistleblower Witness K revealed the Australian Government had illegally and shamefully bugged their neighbour and wartime ally - one of the poorest nations on Earth - for commercial advantage.  In Oil Under Troubled Water, Bernard Collaery provides the sordid backstory to what has been described as “Australia’s biggest political scandal”.
