New security laws
THE Abbott government’s proposed foreign fighters laws would significantly expand the definition of security and extend ASIO’s powers overseas, an independent watchdog has warned. She says that like it is a bad thing. The Inspector General of Intelligence and Security, Vivienne Thom, has raised concerns about the bill to crack down on Australians fighting overseas. People travelling to terrorism hot spots could be jailed for five years. Under the proposed laws, enforcement agencies will get extra powers to investigate, arrest and prosecute people who support foreign conflicts. I don’t even want them let back in the country. Cancel their passports and let them stay in the shithole they originally come from. If they truly are Aussie born then jail them by all means, but I’m not sure if five years cuts it.
