SASS submission - Criminal Code Amendment (Protecting Minors Online) Bill 2017

4 May 2017

The proposed Bill amends the Federal Criminal Code Act 1995 to introduce an offence criminalising acts done using a carriage service to prepare or plan to cause harm to, procure, or engage in sexual activity with, a person under the age of 16. 

SASS stated our support for the Bill, but also highlighted potential inconsistencies with Tasmanian legislation.
