G20 (Safety and Security) Bill 2013
ALHR made a submission to Queensland Parliament’s Legal Affairs and Community Safety Committee, regarding the proposed bill.
ALHR considers that powers proposed under relevant sections of the G20 (Safety and Security) Bill 2013 are already appropriately dealt with under the current law which provides the powers for police and ?authorised persons? to carry out the objects and purposes of the Bill.
ALHR also contends that there is a substantial derogation of civil rights within the meaning and purposes of the Bill.
