It has been lodged under Australia’s ‘Criminal Code Act 1995’ which states that Australian courts can have jurisdiction over cases involving crimes against humanity irrespective of whether the offense was committed in Australia or not.

The complaint has been filed by Sikhs for Justice (SFJ) with Christopher Craigie, Director Commonwealth Public Prosecutions in Australia. – PTI
