TOPIC: Scandalising the Court
#190834

Scandalising the Court 3 Months, 2 Weeks ago  
This is a contemp law that currently exists in Australia - and primarily affects those commenting/reporting on court cases

It is a crime to criticise a court or a judge there - and, on conviction, a fine or prison sentence may be given.

Abolished in the UK some time ago, it was used in the George Pell case - when some court reporters were accused, and convicted.

Conversations about court matters in Australia are consequently somewhat muted - as walls have ears, and recording devices ubiquitous.
