The Bali Bombings: Looking for Explanations

The Bali Bombings: Looking for Explanations | Prosecuting the Bali Bombers | Scoop.it
One of the first issues raised by the bombings in Bali on 12 October 2002 is the question of who was the perpetrator. Suspicion has immediately fallen on organisations within Indonesia which, it is claimed, have links to Al Qaeda. While the Australian Government’s position is only that the bombings were clearly a terrorist attack, the United States Government has declared that an Al Qaeda–linked group is responsible.

National Security versus Civil Liberties: Towards and Australian Bill of Rights

Excerpt from Michael de Percy's paper:

Why the urgent need for an Australian Bill of Rights?
Issues of border security were already at the forefront of the political agenda (Brennan 2003) when the events of September 11 and the Bali bombings shocked the Australian political landscape. Amidst this climate of fear, legislation was rushed through Parliament to combat the ‘terrorists’. The resulting terror laws, which include new state powers to detain citizens not accused of crimes and the reversal of the burden of proof on the state, ‘counter-terrorism’ measures in the western world” (Hocking 2004; also Evans 2003). Unfortunately, the frantic rush to pass legislation to protect the state may have evoked Sir Thomas More’s (Roper 1967:147) fear that in ‘cutting down’ the rule of law to ‘get after the devil’, citizens have ‘nowhere to hide’ from the abuse of state power.
