The provisions in this Bill will extend the prison sentences of Indonesian Fishermen- the organisers/agents/ people smugglers are not on the boats waiting to be captured.

Another unfortunate result will be the criminalisation of people in Australia who send money to family and friends in Indonesia to support them what is the difference in money for food, medicine and shelter and money for a boat who decides?

If you have concerns please make a submission.
