The applicant was the subject of a supervision order made on under the provisions of the Dangerous Prisoners (Sexual Offenders) Act 2003 (Qld). The supervision order contained the conventional requirement that the applicant comply with every reasonable direction of a corrective services officer. Corrective services staff supervising the applicant were legitimately concerned with aspects of the applicant’s behaviour. As a result of these concerns the first respondent issued direction. In these proceedings, the applicant sought relief from the effect of aspects of the directions.
Scott McLeod KC (leading P O’Higgins) appeared for the second respondents, instructed by Crown Law.
