Newest anti-terrorism laws introduced into Parliament

Thursday 30 October, 2014

The newest in a string of anti-terroism laws targeted at telecommunications has been introduced today, continuing to have freedom implications for journalists.

The Government has introduced the Telecommunications (Interception and Access) Amendment (Data Retention) Bill 2014, as the next step in giving law enforcement and security agencies the tools they need to keep Australia safe, but the downside may be that they are used, in conjunction with other terror laws, to monitor or hamper journalists in their investigative work.
