They raid ABC’s Sydney headquarters…

Police have raided the Canberra home of a News Corp journalist after she reported that the Federal Government was considering spying on Australians, a report said.

Annika Smethurst reported earlier this year that government agencies were considering spying on Australians.

According to The Daily Telegraph, the raid related to a story published in April last year in which Annika Smethurst reported that the Home Affairs and Defence departments were considering giving spy agencies greater surveillance powers.

“This raid demonstrates a dangerous act of intimidation towards those committed to telling uncomfortable truths,” a News Corp spokesperson said.

“The raid was outrageous and heavy-handed.”

The Australian Federal Police (AFP) confirmed the raid took place earlier on Tuesday amid an investigation into leaked information.

“The matter relates to an investigation into the alleged unauthorised disclosure of national security information that was referred to the AFP,” the AFP said in a statement.

“This warrant relates to the alleged publishing of information classified as an official secret, which is an extremely serious matter that has the potential to undermine Australia’s national security.

“No arrests are expected today as a result of this activity.”  Read more…

“My government is absolutely committed to freedom of the press,” Mr Morrison, talking through his backside, told journalists.

The AFP mounted an eight-hour raid yesterday on the ABC’s Sydney headquarters over the Afghan Files — a series of investigative stories published in 2017 that revealed allegations of unlawful killings and misconduct by Australian special forces in Afghanistan based on secret documents leaked to the ABC.

The stories, by ABC investigative journalists Dan Oakes and Sam Clark, revealed allegations of unlawful killings and misconduct by Australian special forces in Afghanistan and were based off hundreds of pages of secret Defence documents leaked to the ABC.
