The Legislation

Section 93P of the Crimes Act 1900 deals with the offence of ‘Special Provisions Relating to Geographical Application of This Division’ and reads as follows:

93P Special Provisions Relating to Geographical Application of This Division

(1) A person commits an offence against a provision of this Division if:

(a) the person does an act outside the State that constitutes the offence, and

(b) (apart from this section) the act would have constituted the offence had it been done within this State, and

(c) the offence involves intending to cause public alarm or anxiety, or economic loss, within the State.

(2) A person who commits an offence by the operation of this section may be dealt with, and is liable to the same punishment, as if the person had committed the offence within the State.

(3) If an offence against a provision of this Division involves intending to cause public alarm or anxiety, or economic loss, within the State, a geographical nexus between the State and any other element of the offence is not required.

(4) The other provisions of this Act, the provisions of other Acts and the common law, in so far as these are applicable, apply to an offence to which this section applies as if it had been committed within the State (for example, section 344A and the rules of law relating to attempts to commit offences apply to such an offence).

(5) This section is in addition to and does not derogate from any other basis on which the courts of the State may exercise criminal jurisdiction.
