Spencer v. Commonwealth UPDATE, Wednesday 10 December

Both the Commonwealth and the State made their final oral submissions on Monday 8 December.

Both barristers returned to similar themes to their opening statements, attempting to steer the court away from the substantive matter which is the theft of the carbon stored in the trees on Peter Spencer’s property to assist in in meeting Australia’s Kyoto Protocol commitment.

Today, Peter and the team have been working on Peter’s final oral submission, which he is to present to the Court tomorrow morning commencing at 10:15AM.

Tomorrow is the final day of the trial courtroom process.


Outside the Federal Court building Monday 8 December – Dan Hughes, Alastair McRobert, Peter Spencer, Rhonda and Wally Mitchell
