The Law Council of Australia have today issued a media release stating 'Australians who have travelled overseas to support terrorist organisations should be allowed back to Australia to face the full force of our laws'.

President, Arthur Moses SC told a Parliamentary Intelligence and Security Committee hearing that the Law Council did not support the implementation of temporary exclusion orders (TEOs), which would ban citizens suspected of engaging in terrorism-related activities from returning to Australia for at least two years.
