Interaction of control order regime and proposed post-sentence preventive detention for terrorism offenders
Thank you for the opportunity for Law Council representatives to appear before the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security (the Committee) on 14 October 2016 as part of its inquiry into the Criminal Code Amendment (High Risk Terrorist Offenders) Bill 2016 (the Bill).
In response to a question from the Shadow Attorney-General, the Hon. Mark Dreyfus QC, and evidence provided to the Committee by the Attorney-General’s Department, the Law Council has prepared this supplementary submission to further inform the Committee’s consideration of the Bill.
In a letter of 13 October 2016 (one day before the hearing), the Committee was asked by the Attorney-General to consider the interaction of the proposed continuing detention order (CDO) regime with the control order regime.
