Senate votes to back Lambie’s call for an investigation into claims of assault, torture and international human rights abuses during SAS training. standard

JLN Independent Tasmanian Senator Jacqui Lambie has welcomed a Senate vote which ensures her motion calling for an independent Senate Committee investigation of the way that SAS treat soldiers on Resistance to Interrogation training courses or exercises. “ I’m very humbled that the Senate voted to support my motion (see here) 34 votes to 27.  The last time I felt this way, was after the Senate voted to pass my Private Members Bill which linked Australian soldiers’ pay rises to the pay rises of our Politicians.
