Review of the Re-listing of Hizballah's External Security Organisation (ESO) under the Criminal Code Act 1995

On Friday 8 May 2009 the Hon Robert McClelland MP, Attorney-General, made the decision to review the re-listing of Hizballah’s ESO.

Section 102.1A of the Criminal Code Act 1995 provides that the Committee may review a regulation which lists an organisation as a terrorist organisation and report its comments and recommendations to each House of the Parliament before the end of the applicable disallowance period for the House. The disallowance period is 15 sitting days from the day the regulation is tabled.

The Committee invites interested persons and organisations to make submissions by 11 June 2009. Please refer to our brochure called preparing a submission for more information.

In order to facilitate electronic publishing of submissions, the Committee would prefer them to be emailed to or sent on disk or CD-ROM to the Committee Secretariat in Microsoft Word® or Portable Document Format (PDF).
