Don't Miss It!

30 August 2002

We have just received this media release from Tony Kevin concerning two upcoming special features on the people smuggling disruption program in Indonesia and SIEVX:

The Channel Nine SUNDAY TV current affairs program this Sunday morning (1 September) will feature important new revelations on the activities of Kevin Ennis, Australian Police informant and people smuggling agent provocateur, in Indonesia during 2001. See this - and the transcript will be available soon afterwards on www.ninemsn.com - go to "Sunday".

Then on Monday night's Late Night Live, Radio National 10pm 2 September, Phillip Adams will host a followup discussion with Ross Coulthart (SUNDAY) and Tony Kevin (author of SIEV X submissions to Senate "unthrown children" Enquiry) on the importance of the SUNDAY program disclosures on Ennis's working relationships with the Australian and Indonesian police, and the implications for the SIEV X Senate enquiry, now in its final stages.

The mystery of why and how SIEV X sank with the loss of 353 asylum-seeker lives, mostly women and children, on 19 October 2001, is starting to become clearer, thanks to evidence and documents in the Senate Select Committee into a Certain Maritime Incident, the growing public concern as manifested in the www.sievx.com informational website, and SUNDAY's fearless investigation into Australia's grubby anti-people smuggling disruption activities in Indonesia.

Please don't miss these two vital programs - and please show your politicians and media afterwards that you care about this. Don't let the SIEV X enquiry be buried in media apathy and political timidity!

The first anniversary of the tragedy of SIEV X is fast approaching.
