The West Live: What will happen to 7000 Australians stranded in Bali due to the coronavirus?
Indonesia Institute president Ross Taylor joins Jenna Clarke on The West Live to dissect the latest on 7000 Australians living in Bali being told to leave the island by August 8.
Foreign nationals were issued “emergency stay permits” in March but thousands of Australians have been ordered to go once the visas expire.
WA Attorney-General John Quigley will also be on the program this morning to discuss how the law will change after a witness in a domestic violence case was arrested, kept in custody and strip-searched when she was too ill to give evidence.
Yamatji woman and the 2017 Miss NAIDOC winner Kearah Ronan was forced to spend a night in Perth Watch House for “failing to obey a witness summons” when she was 21-weeks pregnant.
She had been due to appear in court to give evidence against a former partner but unknowingly had a warrant called out on her despite informing the court registry she was ill with morning sickness.
Mr Quigley will talk with Jenna about what changes have been recommended to the Criminal Procedure Act and how to stop the same thing from happening again.
The Attorney-General will also touch on calls from the WA Liberals to not just stop Victorians from coming into the state but also residents from New South Wales.
