Expert panel on terrorism and violent extremism prevention and response powers - report 1

21 Sep 2017
Description

In June 2017, the Victorian government established the independent Expert Panel on Terrorism and Violent Extremism Prevention and Response Powers (‘Expert Panel’), led by former Victoria Police Chief Commissioner, Ken Lay AO, and former Victorian Court of Appeal Justice, the Hon David Harper AM.

The panel was tasked with examining and evaluating the operation and effectiveness of Victoria’s key legislation and related powers and procedures of relevant agencies to prevent, monitor, investigate and respond to terrorism.

This first report from the panel contains sixteen recommendations covering the use of force, investigative and preventative detention, presumptions against bail and parole, special police powers during declared events and the protection of criminal intelligence.

The Andrews Government has accepted in-principle all recommendations.
