Australia “urged” to get on board
I haven’t the link at hand but look up recent Guardian and ABC articles on how, curiously, human rights lawyer Amal Clooney (now employed by Tory govt as a ‘media freedom representative’) personally encouraged Australia to follow US, UK and Canada’s example and adopt the Magnitsky Act. She gave evidence at an Australian parliamentary enquiry and “urged” Australia to get on board. Not sure whether Australia has adopted this, or is still deliberating.
Amal Clooney is linked with Assange’s legal defence firm, Doughty Chambers and personally defended him, for a while.
