Steven Price (media lawyer, author of www.medialawjournal.co.nz)
Speaking about media law and contempt of court
Solidarity group panel
Speaking on the broader issues around the state terror raids of 15th October 2007 and the Search and Surveillance Powers Bill introduced to Parliament last week.
Followed by question and answer session and
Stay for tea, coffee and biscuits.
With the depositions hearing for eighteen of those arrested in the raids last year currently taking place in Auckland, and with Fairfax (the publisher of the Dominion Post) on trial for contempt of court in Wellington 15th - 18th September, it is a timely opportunity to look at the broader political context. We hope you can join us at the meeting.
(We regret to inform you that Moana Jackson can no longer speak at the meeting as he will be out of Wellington at a tangi).
