CRIMES ACT 1958 - SECT 80A

Extra-territorial offences

    (1)     If—

        (a)     a person does, or omits to do, an act or thing referred to in sections 81–87 (both inclusive) outside, or partly outside, Victoria; and

        (b)     there is a real and substantial link within the meaning of subsection (2) between doing, or omitting to do, the act or thing and Victoria—

those sections apply to the act or thing or the omission as if it had been done, or omitted to be done, wholly within Victoria.

    (2)     For the purposes of subsection (1), there is a real and substantial link with Victoria—

        (a)     if a significant part of the conduct relating to, or constituting the doing of the act or thing, or the omission, occurred in Victoria; or

        (b)     where the act or thing was done, or the omission occurred, wholly outside Victoria, if the act or thing was done, or omitted to be done, with the intention that substantial harmful effects arise in Victoria and such effects did arise.
