Where To Draw The Line
Do Australia’s Anti-terror laws impinge on peoples human rights?
Making The Trial
The Crown’s Case Is Like a Mosaic
The 12 men were charged with being members of a terrorist organisation. Greg Barns outline how the prosecution approached the case.
To Bail Or Not To Bail
The 12 men tried for terrorism offences in Melbourne in 2008 were held in a maximum security prison for two years while they awaited their trial. Anyone charged with a terrorism offence is automatically denied bail and held in maximum security unless exceptional circumstances can be demonstrated.
Post verdict press conference
Immediately after the jury handed down their verdicts, defence barristers Greg Barns and Rob Satry held a press conference to explain why Australia’s anti-terror laws need to be changed.
