Home Affairs Minister Karen Andrews says “we cannot be complacent” as the threat level of a terrorist attack on Australian soil remains at probable.

The government is seeking for extra powers to monitor high-risk terrorist, or keep them behind bars.

Ms Andrews says while the pandemic has made it harder for terrorists to carry out attacks, it doesn’t mean the threat has gone away.

“During COVID people have a lot of time at home, and they have been online, and they have been subject to radicalisation,” she told Liam Bartlett on 6PR Mornings.

“We have to be really, really concerned about what the future holds for us here, and be very much aware that we cannot be complacent.

“The threat hasn’t gone away.”
