Prohibited Person Notice
G20 (Safety and Security) Act 2013

Dear Mr O’Reilly

As the Commissioner of the Queensland Police Service I have the authority under section 50 of the G20 (Safety and Security) Act 2013 (‘The Act’) to compile a list of persons who I consider should be prohibited from entering any of the G20 security areas.

I have been provided with information about you and after considering the material I am reasonably satisfied that you are a person who should be included on the prohibited persons list. You are therefore prohibited from entry into all G20 security areas established under the Act from 13 November 2014 to 17 November 2014 inclusive.

Attached are maps indicating the G20 security areas current at this time. Note that new areas may be declared at any time before or during the above mentioned G20 period. It is your responsibility to avoid entering these areas. Maps of all G20 security areas will also be available on the Queensland Police Service website.

As a consequence of your inclusion on the prohibited persons list, should you enter or attempt to enter
a G20 security area during the above mentioned period you will be committing an offence under section 72 of the Act and could be arrested.
If you believe your name should not be on the prohibited persons list you may make a written submission within 24 hours of receipt of this notice as to why your name should be removed from the list.

Should you chose [sic] to make a written submission to me as to why your name should not be included on the prohibited persons list I will consider your submission and make a determination either to retain your name on the list or remove it.

If, after considering your submission, I determine to retain your name on the prohibited persons list, you will be notified of my reasons. However, I am not required to disclose to you any reasons to retain your name on the prohibited persons list if I consider doing so may be:
(a) against Australia’s national security interest, or
(b) could damage international relations between Australia and another nation, or
(c) may be prohibited by a law of the Commonwealth or a State, or
(d) may place the safety of an informant in jeopardy: (section 51(4)(d) of the Act).

Correspondence should be sent to the below postal address.
