The president of Australia’s peak legal body has told leaders of the profession in China that there is no rule of law in their country and they need to speak up and challenge the government.
“I was direct with my colleagues in the legal profession in China,” Mr Moses told The Australian Financial Review.
“I told them that you cannot use rhetoric to claim there is the rule of law in China when you don’t have an independent judiciary, detainees are denied access to lawyers and lawyers are imprisoned for seemingly doing their job by representing persons who may have a contrary view to the government.
“That is not the rule of law. That is rule by law.”
