Watch Tower religion was banned here in Australia in the forties. They were not considered to be a genuine sort of religion but rather a sect.
Australia will do what it wants if there is no redress. They are not afraid of such moves. WT may let the witnesses flounder due to the smallish numbers of active witnesses. The society has a tax exempt status that they fear losing. The commission was an "under oath" hearing that is there to access in the future....There will be claims and the knowledge gained from these hearings will support those claims. I will watch with great interest from now on.... Especially as WTBTS had called for all funds to be marked as donations and sent to Headquarters in America. How suspicious is that!!
