Australia, Police

Article: A Somalian-born man is set to appear before the Richlands Magistrates’ Court today, facing charges of allegedly failing to comply with his visa-mandated curfew conditions. The Australian Federal Police (AFP) charged the 29-year-old man in Brisbane on Tuesday.

According to the AFP, it is alleged that the man breached the conditions of his Commonwealth visa between Sunday and Monday by failing to remain at a notified address. The man has been charged with one count of failing to comply with a curfew condition, which is contrary to section 76C (1) of the Migration Act 1958 (Cth).

If convicted, the man could face a maximum penalty of five years’ imprisonment and a fine of $93,900. This incident highlights the importance of adhering to visa conditions, as non-compliance can have serious consequences.
