Mr Danby asked the Attorney-General, upon notice, on 7 October 2003:

(1) Further to the answer to question No. 1645 (Hansard, 14 May 2003, page 14595), what was the outcome of the investigation into the IIRO.

(2) Have any individuals been (a) arrested, and (b) charged.

(3) Are there persons of interest in Australia.


Mr Ruddock (Attorney-General) —The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1) In his answer to question number 1645, Mr Downer did not refer to any investigation into the IIRO, but rather to investigations into a number of other entities. It would be inappropriate to comment on matters under investigation.

(2) No persons have been arrested or charged.

(3) As has been made public previously, there are individuals in Australia who have links to terrorist organisations overseas.

Such links are investigated by the relevant police and security authorities. It would be inappropriate to comment on matters under investigation.
