Senator Webster asked the Attorney-General, upon notice:

Following on the reply of the Attorney-General in an answer to Senate Question No. 258 on 19 September 1973, what convictions were recorded in Australian courts against (a) the Andric brothers, (b) Jure Marie, and (c) Srecko Blaz Rover.

Senator Murphy - The answer to the honourable senator's question is as follows:

Senate Question No. 258 on 19 September 1973 asked whether the Andric brothers, Jure Marie and Srecko Rover had been ever charged or convicted of any offence in Australia.

I am informed by the Commonwealth Police that the offences for which these persons have been convicted are as follows:

(a)   On 1 June 1965 Ambrose Andric was convicted at Geelong Court of Petty Sessions on charges of causing an explosion likely to endanger life and being in possession of explosives without lawful excuse. Ambrose Andric was reported to be a leader with his brother Adolf of the terrorist incursion into Yugoslavia in June 1972.

(b)   On 25 May 1970 Jure Marie was convicted at Wollongong Court of Petty Sessions on a charge of operating an unregistered printing press. Jure Marie was the leader in Australia of the Croatian Revolutionary Brotherhood and had illegally operated a printing press in relation to his activities for the Brotherhood.

(c)   On 6 June 1969 Srecko Blaz Rover was convicted at Lancefield Court of Petty Sessions on a charge of maintaining a fire during a relevant summer period. He had also been convicted on 5 April 1966 at the Prahran Court of Petty Sessions on a charge of carrying on the business of a second-hand dealer without being licensed. The conviction relating to the maintenance of a fire was in respect of a fire in a country district of Victoria during a period of total fire ban.
