Se­na­tor calls for fire in­ves­ti­ga­tion

The Citizen (KZN) - - World - Can­berra

– An Aus­tralian se­na­tor called on the na­tion’s spies to in­ves­ti­gate whether eco-ter­ror­ists were re­spon­si­ble for the coun­try’s un­prece­dented bush­fire cri­sis.

Ad­dress­ing par­lia­ment on Tues­day Con­cetta Fier­ra­vanti-Wells – a se­nior mem­ber of the rul­ing con­ser­va­tive Lib­eral party – echoed on­line con­spir­acy the­o­ries to claim it “de­fies logic” that hun­dreds of bush­fires could have started at the same time.
