Post-sentence terrorism legislation under review

Parliament of Australia < 1 mins read

The Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security (PJCIS) will hold a public hearing for its Review of post-sentence terrorism orders: Division 105A of the Criminal Code Act 1995 (Criminal Code) this week.

Government and non-government representatives will discuss post-sentence terrorism orders, including continuing detention orders and extended supervision orders.

The PJCIS statutory review follows the publication of a Review into Division 105A (and related provisions) of the Criminal Code Act 1995 (Cth) by the Independent National Security Legislation Monitor (INSLM), Mr Grant Donaldson, in March 2023.

Committee Chair, Mr Peter Khalil MP, said ‘The Committee has received mixed evidence regarding the operation and implications of post-sentence orders. We look forward to hearing about the effectiveness of post-sentence orders – and whether they are necessary, proportionate and operating as intended.’

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

The Committee’s website has a full program for the hearing, and the hearing will be broadcast live at aph.gov.au/live.

Predatory gambling ads must be part of nation’s online safety regime

The Federal Government must urgently act to close a loophole that excludes predatory online gambling advertising targeting children from being included in the nation’s basic online safety code. Under current definitions the nation’s Basic Online Safety Expectations (BOSE) gambling advertising is not included among online harms such as hate speech, cyber-bullying and child sexual exploitation. “The warp-speed growth of online gambling advertising – particularly targeting children and young people – means the government must act urgently to update its actions to protect people online,” the chief executive of the Alliance for Gambling Reform, Carol Bennett, said. “Online gambling is the…
