Counter-terrorism laws

In response to so-called “threats of terrorism”, both the Victorian and federal parliaments have enacted legislation creating a raft of new offence for individuals and organisations engaging in or knowing about “terrorist acts”.

The legislation applies in circumstances including where an action or threat of action has the intention of advancing a political, religious or ideological cause, and would or does cause serious physical harm or serious property damage.
