Noel Washington faces six months in prison for refusing to cooperate with the extraordinary and coercive powers of the Australian Building and Construction Commission.
Anyone interrogated by this outfit does not have the right to silence, can not choose their own lawyer and can not discuss what the commission has asked them about. These powers breach basic human rights and the ILO conventions to which Australia is a signatory. We are calling on the federal government to completely abolish the ABCC and all its powers.
“These laws they have at their disposal have no place in a so-called democratic society like Australia and they use those laws freely to go after ordinary workers.” Noel Washington
