Australian govt bars info on Haneef



Haneef, a former Gold Coast registrar, was held in Australia for three weeks in July 2007 after being charged with supporting a terrorist organisation by “recklessly” giving his mobile phone SIM card to people planning bomb attacks in Britain.
The charges against Haneef were eventually dropped and he returned to his family in Bangalore.

The communique is believed to have the details of the concern expressed by the Indian government over Haneef’s detention.
The cable has been suppressed partially, according to ‘The Australian’ newspaper, by the prime minister’s department because of the apprehension that it would affect Australia’s international relations.
