It sheds light on Australia’s use of espionage, diplomacy and investment to uphold the “national interest” with particular reference to its dealings with Timor-Leste.

The book will be launched by Bernard Collaery, respected Canberra lawyer,lawyer for Witness K and former legal adviser to the Government of Timor-Leste, who received the Civil Australian Lawyer of the Year Award in 2018.
