Richard Boyle’s appeal hearing is on Wednesday 9 August in Adelaide.
Richard Boyle exposed corruption within the Australian Tax Office, and now he is facing life imprisonment.
Telling the truth is not a crime!
Richard Boyle’s appeal regarding the failure of his public interest disclosure defence under the Public Interest Disclosure (PID) Act will be in the South Australian Supreme Court.
We are gathering at AG Mark Dreyfus’ office in solidarity with the Adelaide protest. We hope the decision this time will recognise Richard Boyle’s disclosure was in the public interest.
Attorney General Dreyfus is failing in his duty to protect democracy and transparency by failing to protect whistleblowers, he needs to stand up to those in his party who are instrumental in democracy’s decline.
Please join us at 12 noon to protest against the prosecution of whistleblowers. They should be protected, not punished!
