Why Australia’s tough new terror laws could misfire – CNN.com

The country’s parliament passed the controversial Counter-Terrorism Legislation Amendment Foreign Fighters Bill on Thursday, which will make it easier for police and security agencies to apprehend alleged terrorist suspects and supporters and detain them without explanation, potentially leading to lengthy prison sentences.The new legislation is designed to inhibit would-be fighters from traveling overseas to join conflicts. It will also subject foreign fighters and individuals who have been in conflict areas to a range of controls upon their return to Australia. The laws will also incarcerate individuals who “advocate terrorism.”In reality, the laws lower the threshold for arresting people on alleged terrorism offenses and will potentially lead to innocent individuals being arrested and detained.
