Report: Former Intelligence Officer Secretly Held in Australia
Strange story about Australia’s national security state, which is quite powerful. But I never heard of secret detention of former intelligence officer.
It is understood the man was a senior military officer involved in intelligence, but publishing information about his offending has been banned. It is not known when he was convicted.
When he started serving his time, the Australian federal police asked prison staff to inform it at any point if it appeared someone was about to disclose the nature of his crimes, including if he attempted to receive any “unusual visitors”.
This sounds like the man is considered a national security threat.
