Freed journalist Peter Greste calls out Australia at Media Freedom conference in London


Freed journalist Peter Greste said Australia was now being compared to Iran following raids on Sunday Telegraph political editor Annika Smethurst and the ABC.

Mr Greste gave a scathing review of the use of police raids to crack down on journalists and whistle blowers at the Global Conference for Media Freedom in London yesterday.

The media freedom campaigner, who was jailed in Egypt for more than a year for his reporting for Al Jazeera, said Australia needed an urgent review of media laws.
