Swindle: Australia, East Timor and the Art of the Steal

Swindle: Australia, East Timor and the Art of the Steal

SWINDLE is a story of Big Oil set against the drama of Timor-Leste’s liberation and its aftermath. Fossil fuel corporations and their Australian government partners steal billions from the poorest nation in SE Asia but a spy turned whistleblower exposes them. A secret trial is planned to punish the spy and his lawyer. The government’s case is thin, based on distortions of history that don’t hold up to scrutiny.

SWINDLE looks behind the recent Witness K/Bernard Collaery prosecutions in Canberra to discover the massive theft of Timor-Leste’s major resource and the lies, cover-ups and human rights abuse that accompanied it.

SWINDLE shows how Australia’s “national interest” is used to cover up crimes against humanity and provide cover for corruption.

Australia is supposedly a democratic state but when it comes to ‘national Interest’ we are ruled by an executive – an unelected, unaccountable few who stand above parliamentary politics, whose close ties to the fossil fuel industry are corrupting Australia’s democracy.
SWINDLE explores this secretive arrangement through the prosecutions of an ASIS spy and his lawyer who blew the whistle on an epic swindle that stole oil and gas from Timor-Leste, the poorest nation in SE Asia.
