The Federal Crimes Act and Allan Kessing

Don't miss Allan Kessing tonight in the second program in the Law and Disorder series on SBS television at 8.30 PM (AEDT) , even if you are familiar with the story. It's likely to be uncomfortable but compelling viewing about Kessing's conviction for breach of Section 70 of the Crimes Act following a leak which brought to attention information about a matter of grave national significance. Kessing says the leak was not attributable to him. See what has and hasn't happened since.

    Just watched "The Reluctant Whistleblower" Hang in there Allan: "A lie can be halfway around the world whilst the truth is still putting it's boots on, but it will beat the lie home!"
