PJCIS supports relisting of two terrorist organisations

Parliament of Australia < 1 mins read

The Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security (PJCIS) today tabled its report by statement on the review of the relisting of Jama'at Nusrat al-Islam wal-Muslimin and Islamic State Khorasan Province as terrorist organisations under Australia’s Criminal Code.

Jama'at Nusrat al-Islam wal-Muslimin (JNIM) is an al-Qa’ida aligned Salafi-Jihadist organisation based in Mali and active in West Africa. JNIM was first listed as a terrorist organisation in 2020 following the merger of the terrorist organisation al-Murabitun into JNIM. Since its listing in 2020, JNIM has conducted attacks against both foreign and state security forces, striving to build a Salafi-Islamic state.

Islamic State Khorasan Province (ISKP) is a violent extremist group that also adheres to Salafi jihadist ideology. Since its relisting in 2020, the organisation has shifted its strategic operation towards urban warfare in Afghanistan and parts of north-west Pakistan, promoting itself as a globally motivated jihadist group committed to establishing a global caliphate.

The Committee’s report by statement acknowledges that the appropriate processes have been followed and JNIM and ISKP meet the threshold for listing as terrorist organisations under the Criminal Code.

Further information on the inquiry can be obtained from the Committee’s website.

PRESUMPTION OF EVIL – a journey into one man’s hell

The 86 year old Noel Greenaway will be eligible for parole in five years. If he is still alive. For now, he is in a maximum security cell, convicted of sexual assaults against five teenagers – when he was in his 30s. The only evidence against him was testimony given by them - now middle aged women then youngsters at the Parramatta Training School for Girls. Their testimony is in sharp contrast to numerous character references presented to the court prior to sentencing that paint a picture of a man of high moral principles, who was never heard to raise…
