Australia's New Anti-Terrorism Legislation
There’s a new Australian anti-terrorism law in the works. It includes such things as:
- 14-day secret detention without arrest by security services
- Shoot-to-kill “on suspicion” powers for police
- Imprisonment and fines for revealing an individual has been the subject of an investigation
This draft legislation was not supposed to be public yet, but the Chief Minister of the ACT revealed it on his website last week in defiance of a federal government request not to do so.
