Submission to Australian Law Reform Commission's Review of Sedition Laws (and brief response to their Discussion Paper 71 on that topic)
Pyke, John R. (2006) Submission to Australian Law Reform Commission's Review of Sedition Laws (and brief response to their Discussion Paper 71 on that topic). (Unpublished)
In this submission, I argued that the proposed new sections of the Criminal Code (Cth) were not wholly unreasonable, but that the existing section 80.1 as to treason, and the existing provisions of the Crimes Act 1914 Part IIA as to unlawful organisations were drawn so broadly as to be an infringement of the right of freedom of speech.
My brief response to the Commission's "Discussion Paper" (really a draft report) No 71 is appended to the original submission.
