Police Raids - 1973

Council for Civil Liberties evidence to Senate Select Committee on Civil Rights of Migrant Australians, 5th September 1973.

There may well be good cause for the police to suspect that some individuals or organisations have engaged in terrorist or other illegal activity, and of course the police are bound to act upon any reliable information in their possession concerning that. This does not excuse the manner in which the police carried out dawn raids on 68 or so homes of members of the Croatian community in New South Wales on 1st April 1973.
