Victoria proposes forcing suspected radicalised teenagers into programs
Victoria police are seeking powers to force those they identify as potential terrorists into deradicalisation programs, restrict who they associate with, and ban them from using the internet under a proposal before the state government.
The Victorian attorney general, Martin Pakula, confirmed on Monday that under the proposal, curfews would be imposed on those teenagers deemed to be radicalised, regardless of whether they were planning to join conflict overseas or carry out a terrorist attack.
"At this stage it's only a proposal from Victoria police being considered," Pakula told Radio 3AW.
