A 65 year old retired Australian has offered to hang the Nguyen Tuong Van, an Australian who was sentenced to death.
If this macabre scenario pushes ahead, could the retiree be charged with murder?
There are a limited number of crimes that the Australian authorities could prosecute even if the acts were conducted on foreign territory.
The ones that come to mind are:
- Taking sex tours which engage in child sex
- Fighting with the enemy against Australian armed forces in a war
- Sending SPAM emails to Australians
Killing of an Australian, under the auspices of a foreign government? I don't know. Can someone enlighten me on this?
