I move:

That the Senate—
the comments on 26 February 2007 by former Family Court Chief Justice Alastair Nicholson that the Prime Minister, the Minister for Foreign Affairs and the Attorney-General could be charged with war crimes for insisting Mr David Hicks face trial before a United States of America military commission,
the Federal Court case examining the Government’s breach of its protective duty to Australian citizen Mr Hicks, and
that Mr Hicks has been detained for 1 909 days; and
calls on the Government to fulfil its duty of care and return Mr Hicks to Australia.

Question put.
