Senator ELLISON (Minister for Justice and Customs) (9:24 PM) —I can see what Senator Ludwig is driving at. You might have a private company which is ethnically based: for instance, you might have a private company set up as a trustee for a fund administering scholarships for Jewish schools or something of that sort and the threat is carried out against that corporation. It could be dealing with not only education but a myriad things. It might be not Jewish but a company for the administration of scholarships for people studying the Islamic faith. The threats could be carried out against that corporation. That corporation could enjoy a personal entity at law, and the threats could involve acts of terrorism. As I said to Senator Faulkner, we will check on this and get back to the chamber if there is any change in that advice.
