CANBERRA

Labor is appalled by the seven year gaol sentence given to Australian journalist Peter Greste.

We remain ready to help the Abbott Government do everything it can to assist in securing Peter’s release.

Our thoughts are with Peter, his parents, family, colleagues and friends at this incredibly difficult time.

Being a journalist is not a crime.

Journalists shouldn’t be put on trial or locked up for doing their job.

We commend the ongoing efforts of Australian diplomats who are working so hard on this matter.
