Statement given to witnesses concerning the giving of evidence to the Review of Division 3 Part III of the ASIO Act 1979
Summary Division 3 of Part III of the ASIO Act enables ASIO to obtain a warrant from an 'issuing authority' for a person to appear before a 'prescribed authority' for questioning in order to obtain intelligence that is important in relation to a terrorism offence. A warrant may also provide for a person to be detained for questioning if there are reasonable grounds for believing that the person may alert someone involved in a terrorism offence, may not appear before the prescribed authority, or may destroy or damage evidence. The report recommends a range of additional measures if Division 3 of Part III of the ASIO Act is to continue to have effect beyond 23 July 2006. -- foreword
