Albert Langer (CM. 28.2.96)
The NSW CCL fully supports the right of Albert Langer to make the comments he has made. The NSWCCL also condemns the stupidity of that particular part of the Act which prevents people from making such comments.
The Council totally condemns the political gaoling of Albert Langer, supports Amnesty International in declaring him a prisoner of conscience and supports the Victorian Council for Civil Liberties in their campaign for his immediate release. (unanimous)
This AGM of the NSWCCL calls on the Premier of New South Wales to establish an all-parties committee with the view to formulating proposals regarding legislation for voluntary euthanasia to be put to the citizens of NSW for endorsement without undue delay.
