In 2018, barrister and former Attorney-General of the ACT Bernard Collaery was charged with conspiracy and forbidden to speak about the charges laid against him.

Bernard joins host Jerome Doraisamy on this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show to discuss his new book, “Oil Under Troubled Water”, which he says reveals some dark and controversial facets of the Australian government’s relationship with East Timor.

Bernard delves into the foreign interference laws that allowed him to be prosecuted, the wider implications his experience has on the legal profession, and why he thinks Australian law is following a dangerous, repressive path.
