(c) the issuing court is satisfied on the balance of probabilities that section 104.12 and subsection 104.12A(2) have been complied with in relation to the order.

(1)   Who may adduce evidence or make submissions.  

On the day specified as mentioned in paragraph 104.5(1)(e) , the following persons may adduce evidence (including by calling witnesses or producing material), or make submissions, to the issuing court in relation to the confirmation of the order:

(2)  
Subsection (1) does not otherwise limit the power of the court to control proceedings in relation to the confirmation of an interim control order.

To avoid doubt, in proceedings under this section, the issuing court:

Note:

The Evidence Act 1995 covers the admissibility of evidence adduced under subsection (1).

(b) a representative of the person;


(c) if the person is a resident of Queensland, or the court made the order in Queensland - the Queensland public interest monitor.

The court may declare, in writing, the order to be void if the court is satisfied that, at the time of making the order, there were no grounds on which to make the order.

(7)  
Otherwise, the court may:


(a) revoke the order if, at the time of confirming the order, the court is not satisfied as mentioned in paragraph 104.4(1)(c) ; or


(b) confirm and vary the order by removing one or more obligations, prohibitions or restrictions if, at the time of confirming the order, the court is satisfied as mentioned in paragraph 104.4(1)(c) but is not satisfied as mentioned in paragraph 104.4(1)(d) ; or


(c) confirm the order without variation if, at the time of confirming the order, the court is satisfied as mentioned in paragraphs 104.4(1)(c) and (d) .
