List of organisations outlawed in Australia for terrorism

List of organisations outlawed in Australia for terrorism

In 2002, a range of terrorist organisation offences were enacted "enabling Australian governments to deal with organisations involved in terrorism." [$file/065-2002.doc "The Security Legislation Amendment (Terrorism) Act 2002" - Australian federal legislation.]

As of early June 2007 there were 19 organisations listed as "terrorist organisations" by the Australian government. [ [ Australian National Security - Listing of Terrorist Organisations ] ] All but one of those organisations are associated to Islamic ideology. For listing, an organisation may be found to be such by a court as part of a prosecution for a terrorist offence or the same may be specified in regulations upon the motion of the Attorney-General of Australia.

Under Australian law it is an offense to materially support or be supported by such organizations.
