Mr GORTON (Higgins) - Today we are discussing the matter of a number of Australian citizens who have been subjected to arrest and harassment by the Yugoslav Government. Included in those citizens are 3 Australians who have been killed by the Yugoslav Government. For all we know, and for all the Government has found out, it may well have been judicial murder by the Yugoslav Government. To keep the record straight 1 indicate the timetable of events. These men were tried, not arrested, during the term of the present Government, not the previous Government.

Dr Klugman - When were they arrested?

Mr GORTON - They were tried in December. They were arrested previous to that.

Dr Klugman - Six months before, and what did you do about it?
