Last November, the President of the Human Rights Commission, Professor Gillian Triggs, delivered a lecture at an event of the Australian Labor Party organised by member for Fraser, Andrew Leigh – the annual Fraser Lecture (note similarity to annual Sir Garfield Barwick Lecture).
Yes, she actually delivered the lecture, rather than just accepting the invitation and then realising that this was an event organised by the Labor Party (note invitation to a supporter and to donate) and then declining to speak.
Will Shadow Attorney General be calling for her resignation, suppported of course by Julian Burnside, QC.
Here is all the information you need to know:
