Rudd should back Timor's plea: Brown

Media Release
Bob Brown 31 May 2010

Australian Greens Leader Bob Brown says the Rudd Government should back Timor Leste and insist oil and gas giant Woodside not only provide studies on all the processing options for its Greater Sunrise gas fields, but favour the Timorese unless there is a genuine prohibitive obstacle.

"Timor Leste is one of our poorest neighbours," said Senator Brown.

"The Government of Xanana Gusmao is showing real guts in warning Woodside it would rather shelve the Greater Sunrise project than be sidelined," Senator Brown said.
