3  Authority

                   This instrument is made under section 35AA of the Australian Citizenship Act 2007.

4  Declared terrorist organisation—Jabhat al‑Nusra

                   The organisation that was known as Jabhat al‑Nusra (among other names) at the time this instrument commenced is declared as a declared terrorist organisation for the purposes of section 35AA of the Australian Citizenship Act 2007.

Note 1:       Subsection 35AA(1) of the Australian Citizenship Act 2007 requires an organisation declared under that subsection to be a terrorist organisation within the meaning of paragraph (b) of the definition of terrorist organisation in subsection 102.1(1) of the Criminal Code, which covers organisations specified by regulations.

Note 2:       When this instrument commenced, the organisation known as Jabhat al‑Nusra was such a terrorist organisation because it was specified by section 5 of the Criminal Code (Terrorist Organisation—Jabhat al‑Nusra) Regulation 2016. Jabhat al‑Nusra was at that time also known by a variety of other names listed in that section. After that commencement, if the name (or names) by which the organisation is known changes, that regulation may be amended to ensure that the organisation is still so specified (see section 102.1AA of the Criminal Code).

Note 3:       However, if no regulation is in effect that specifies the organisation for the purposes of the Criminal Code, this instrument also has no effect. The Criminal Code (Terrorist Organisation—Jabhat al‑Nusra) Regulation 2016 ceases to have effect on 28 June 2019 at the latest, but may cease to have effect earlier if repealed, or if a notice is published under subsection 102.1(4) of the Criminal Code in relation to the organisation (see subsection 102.1(3) of the Criminal Code).
