Senator XENOPHON (South Australia) (21:14): But how different is that from the existing test? Is the minister saying that the evidentiary requirements are somehow lessened or somehow eased? There seems to be a big issue here about the willingness of ACMA, and particularly the AFP, to tackle these issues because they have other priorities. They deal with many, many other issues. I am not being critical of the AFP per se, but it seems that this has not been a priority for them, particularly when you consider that lives have been ruined because of these offshore illegal sites. Of course, they have been by the legal sites as well, but it is the illegal sites that we are looking at now.
