ALHR contributes to the work of the Independent National Security Legsilation Monitor

September 26, 2012

Australian Lawyers for Human Rights (ALHR) has welcomed the opportunity provided by the INSLM to comment on powers relating to questioning warrants and questioning and detention warrants under the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation Act 1979 and control orders and preventative detention orders under the Criminal Code Act 1995. ALHR holds significant concern about the legislative regimes under review and the lack of adherence of those regimes to the Australian government’s obligations under international law including international human rights law. ALHR has addressed all 20 questions proposed by the INSLM in his 2011 Annual Report and provided a number of recommendations.
