Activists ‘dishonestly manipulated Indigenous people’ in case against Santos gas project

Sky News host Peta Credlin says the Federal Court case launched against Santos’ Barossa gas project has exposed how activists are “dishonestly manipulating Indigenous people” in their anti-energy campaigns.

A Federal Court judge on Monday lifted the ban on the project, declaring that some of the evidence produced by the Environmental Defenders Office was tainted by “confection” and the coaching of witnesses.

The judge said that a lawyer from the Defenders Office had engaged in “a form of subtle coaching” by urging Tiwi Islanders to tell “their stories in a way that propelled their traditions into the sea and into the vicinity of the pipeline”.

Ms Credlin said the real crime here is the fact that federal Labor is funding bodies that just make doing the government’s job even harder.

“A key duty of government is to foster economic development, because how can a country and its citizens prosper if we don’t develop our natural resources?

“Yet this Environmental Defenders Office, that’s been dead’s set on making us poorer, is actually funded to the tune of $10 million over four years, thanks to the Albanese government.”
