NEWCASTLE — On November 9, 40 people attended the launch of My Story by Mamdouh Habib and co-author Julia Collingwood.
It is an incredible tale of deception by Australian government "security" agencies. It is a shock to hear first-hand just how disgraceful and unprincipled the behaviour of these agencies is, and the extent of their influence over the process and execution of laws.
Habib asked, what is the meaning of the law when you can no longer even prove in court what the truth is? He is not allowed to identify ASIO officers in court, so how can he prove his story is true? He said the point of the law is to keep people scared.
Habib explained how he had been asked by Australian security agencies to work for them on the basis of his extensive contacts overseas and linguistic abilities. He always refused these offers.
