“From morally bankrupt to financially bankrupt”

As Israel’s enemies open up new fronts – the BDS, flotillas and flytillas – hear about how Shurat HaDin (Israel Law Centre) is finding innovative ways to fight back.

From a breakfast lecture held on May 18th 2012. Click here to go to the JBD event page.

Akiva (Andrew) Hamilton joined Shurat HaDin after a career as a corporate/ high-tech lawyer. Previously rated as one of Australia's most inspirational in-house lawyers, Akiva has a history of successful litigation against injustice and has won two cases in the High Court of Australia - one led to a High Court ruling which significantly changed Australia's legal interpretation of an international convention, and the other led to a landmark Full Federal Court judgment relating to the definition of illegal pyramid selling.

Since joining Shurat HaDin, Akiva has exposed Australia's largest charity, World Vision, as using AusAID provided taxpayer dollars in Gaza to fund an arm of the proscribed terrorist group the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. In addition to extensive press coverage, the breach of criminal anti-terror provisions and misuse of taxpayers funds is being investigated at the Federal Police, AusAID and political levels.
