Customs Act 1901

PART XII - OFFICERS  

Division 1 - Powers of officers  

Subdivision B - General regulatory powers  

SECTION 195A   195A   POWER TO QUESTION PERSONS FOUND IN RESTRICTED AREAS  


If a person is in a section 234AA place, an officer may ask the person for, and require the person to provide:


(a) the person's name; and


(b) the person's reason for being in the section 234AA place; and


(c) evidence of the person's identity.

Note:

Failing to answer a question or produce a document when required to do so by an officer may be an offence (see sections 243SA and 243SB). However, a person does not have to answer if doing so would tend to incriminate the person (see section 243SC).
