The Australian Federal Police has admitted that it illegally obtained the phone records of an unnamed journalist, thus violating the new metadata regime put in place by the Coalition government in 2015.
Documents which were seized by the Australian Federal Police during raids last year in a bid to find the source of leaks to stories about the NBN Co will not be available to the police for their investigation.
Three primary school students, who had access to metadata similar to that which has been available to Australian government agencies since October 2015, were able to track down a mock whistleblower in just two hours.
This is an unbearably good headline :-)
Great Stuff Sam - I wish this could go out to a larger audience.
5G will save us, and the NBN will have to be redone anyway.
As always, a great article Sam.
I will never forgive him.
