Lawyer Bernard Collaery faces jail for allegedly helping his former client, intelligence officer Witness K, expose Australia’s bugging of the East Timorese government to gain the upper hand during oil and gas negotiations. His ongoing legal case has been described as a grave threat to freedom of speech at home. Discussing his new book, Oil Under Troubled Water: Australia’s Timor Sea Intrigue, Bernard appears alongside Julian Burnside, with host Eleanor Hall, to explore the fragile, fraught and vitally important relationship between our government, the legal system and whistleblowers.
