AUSTRALIAN POLICE DROP CASE AGAINST JOURNALIST WHO REPORTED ‘WAR CRIMES’
The coverage by Dan Oakes for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) in 2017 was based on leaks from government whistleblowers.
Last year, police raided the ABC’s Sydney newsroom and said the reporting had breached national security laws.
The ABC welcomed the police decision on Thursday, but called for law changes.
Police had outlined three potential criminal charges.
