Maritime Crime and the Extra Territorial Jurisdiction of the Queensland Courts

  • R.J. Sibley

Abstract

During 1984 and 1985 three Justices of the Supreme Court of Queensland each held that the court had jurisdiction to hear offences against the Queensland Criminal Code committed around islands and over reefs in the Torres Straits (The trials of Fritz).1 These rulings raise important questions about the relationship between S.14A of the Code, s.5 of the Coastal Waters (State Powers) Act 1980 (Cth), the Crimes at Sea Act 1979 (Cth) and the Imperial Admiralty Jurisdiction.
