Minister, I'll just state the question again with a bit of extra information, which I think will address the point you were just making. In the case of a group of people in Australia working with a foreign organisation that had two or more foreign people as the directors of that organisation—which I understand would be caught under that definition—if that organisation was affected by a decision the Australian government had made or not made or by a failure of Australia's regulatory processes and the group of Australians were working with that foreign organisation with the intent of achieving justice for that organisation or the people that that organisation represents who are affected by the regulatory failure in Australia or the decision that the Australian government had made or not made, would the Australian people working with that foreign organisation be caught by the provisions of this bill?
