UPDATED - SPECIAL REPORT:
Australia's property seizure laws:
Now even State Governor speaks
out in favour of changing the law
There must be something drastically wrong with seizure and property forfeiture laws in Australia, as CLA and others have been saying for years, when even a normally non-controversial State Governor, the former eminent WA barrister Malcolm McCusker, is urging the local law profession to push for change. Read what 'The West' reported, and what letter writers, including CLA's Brian Tennant, had to say about the issue: see under 'WA'.
