Advocating Mutiny is an offence under section 83.1 of the Criminal Code Act 1995 (Cth), which carries a maximum penalty of 7 years in prison.
To establish the offence, the prosecution must prove beyond reasonable doubt that:
A ‘mutiny’ is conduct by persons, at least two of whom are members of the ADF, to:
You ‘advocated’ a mutiny if you counselled, promoted, encouraged or urged it.
You may be found guilty even if a mutiny did not eventuate.
You were ‘reckless’ if you were aware there was a substantial risk that your conduct would result in mutiny and it was unjustifiable to take that risk, but you went ahead with your actions regardless.
Proceedings for the offence cannot be commenced without the Attorney-General’s consent
