Adelaide freeway descent 'among nation's most challenging'
Fri, 22 Aug 2014 21:38:22 +1000

Days after a double fatality from a truck accident at the bottom of the South Eastern Freeway in Adelaide, a truck driver has warned the road is the most challenging into an Australian capital city.

The ABC joined driver Peter Sharp at Bridgewater in the Adelaide Hills for a tricky descent of the freeway in a 61-tonne B-double vehicle, to see the challenges heavy-vehicle drivers faced daily.

Mr Sharp said he had made the descent countless times in more than 30 years of truck driving, but it was a task he never took for granted.

"You have to respect the fact that it's a steep, long descent," he said.

By law, his B-double must stay in the left lane and there is a speed limit of 60 kilometres per hour, a speed soon to apply for all trucks and buses making the descent.

Ukraine calls Russian aid convoy crossing border a 'direct invasion'
Fri, 22 Aug 2014 18:59:23 +1000

Ukraine's security chief has accused Russia of a "direct invasion", claiming a disputed aid convoy Moscow sent across the border is being used to smuggle weapons to pro-Kremlin insurgents.

Up to 90 trucks carrying aid to civilians in rebel-held areas of eastern Ukraine have crossed the border and are on their way to rebel stronghold of Luhansk.

Moscow warned against any attempt to "disrupt" the convoy but did not specify what action it was prepared to take if Kiev's forces intervened.

Kiev, for its part, said Ukrainian forces would not attack the convoy and had allowed it to pass to avoid "provocations".

David Eastman freed from jail as murder retrial ordered
Fri, 22 Aug 2014 14:34:33 +1000

David Harold Eastman has been released from prison after his conviction for murdering a top police officer was quashed by the ACT Supreme Court.

Eastman was released on bail pending a retrial, after agreeing to strict conditions imposed by the DPP. 

Eastman has served more than 19 years in prison after being found guilty of killing Australian Federal Police assistant commissioner Colin Winchester in 1989.

In May an inquiry found Eastman had not received a fair trial, primarily because of flaws in the forensic case, and recommended his murder conviction be quashed.

'Moral burden' will not impede border policies: Morrison
Fri, 22 Aug 2014 00:06:44 +1000

Immigration Minister Scott Morrison has delivered a steadfast defence of his border protection policies, including child detention, during a human rights inquiry in Canberra.

The hearing was highly charged at times, as Mr Morrison was repeatedly asked to justify why children are being held in detention on the Australian mainland, Christmas Island and Nauru.

Mr Morrison said while he wanted to free more children from the centres, the Government must continue with policies that work - and that he could not allow his feelings as a father to get in the way.

"As a parent of two young children, the emotional challenges of working in this policy portfolio are just as real and just as great as they would be for any other parent in my position," he said.
