In the United Kingdom (and to an extent in New Zealand), I have consulted with judges, prosecutors, experienced counsel, my current and recent counterparts,2 and experts in disengagement and counter-radicalisation.</p> <ul> <li><a href="/sites/default/files/inslm-report-prosecution-sentencing-children-for-terrorism.pdf" data-entity-uuid="e045e411-5eca-3901-8b4a-c040a1e1a3aa" data-entity-substitution="media" data-entity-type="media">The prosecution and sentencing of children for terrorism - PDF 3.8MB</a> </li> </ul> </div> Tue, 15 Oct 2019 04:14:09 +0000 Anonymous 13 at https://www.inslm.gov.au INSLM Statutory Deadline Reviews https://www.inslm.gov.au/reviews-reports/inslm-statutory-deadline-reviews <h1 class="au-header-heading">INSLM Statutory Deadline Reviews</h1> <div class="field field--name-field-document-release-date field--type-datetime field--label-hidden field__item">5 March 2018</div> <span><span lang="" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Anonymous (not verified)</span></span> <span>Tue, 2019-10-15 15:14</span> <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>On 1 March 2018 the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security (PJCIS) published its reports in relation to:</p> <ul> <li><a href="https://www.aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_Business/Committees/Joint/Intelligence_and_Security/DeclaredArea/Report">Declared areas</a></li> <li><a href="https://www.aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_Business/Committees/Joint/Intelligence_and_Security/AFPpowersreview/Report">Stop search and seizure power, the control order regime and the preventive detention regime</a></li> </ul> <h3>17 October 2017</h3> <p>On 7 September 2017, the INSLM Dr James Renwick SC completed his reports on Statutory Deadline Reviews which includes the following legislation:</p> <ul> <li>Division 3A of Part 1AA of the Crimes Act (Stop, Search &amp; Seize powers);</li> <li>Sections 119.2 and 119.3 of the Criminal Code (Declared Areas);</li> <li>Divisions 104 and 105 of the Criminal Code (Control Orders &amp; Preventative Detention Orders) including the interoperability of the control order regime and the <em>High Risk Terrorist Offenders Act 2016</em></li> </ul> <p>Each report is self-contained, although there are some common chapters concerning the national security and counter-terrorism landscape, relevant human rights and other obligations and constitutional and inter-governmental arrangements.
