        (1)         Without limiting section 10(1)(f), the Parole Board may (for example) impose a condition on an extended supervision order

            (a)         requiring the person subject to the order to—

                  (i)         reside at a specified address; or

                  (ii)         undertake such activities and programs as determined from time to time by the Board; or

                  (iii)         be monitored by use of an electronic device; or

            (b)         providing that a community corrections officer or police officer may, at any time—

                  (i)         visit the person subject to the order at the person's residential address; and

                  (ii)         access any computer or related equipment that is at the person's residential address or in the possession of the person,

and, for that purpose, enter the premises at that address; or

            (c)         prohibiting or restricting the person subject to the order from—

                  (i)         associating or communicating with a specified person or persons of a specified class; or

                  (ii)         residing or being present at, or being in the vicinity of, a specified place or premises or a place or premises of a specified class; or

                  (iii)         possessing a specified article or weapon, or articles or weapons of a specified class; or

                  (iv)         engaging in specified conduct, or conduct of a specified kind; or

                  (v)         undertaking specified employment or employment of a specified kind; or

                  (vi)         applying for a change of name; or

                  (vii)         engaging in any other conduct of a kind specified by the Board.

        (2)         The Parole Board may, on application by the Attorney-General or the person subject to an extended supervision order, or of its own motion, vary or revoke a condition of the order imposed by the Board or impose further conditions on the order.

        (3)         The Parole Board must, on imposing a condition or further condition on, or on varying or revoking a condition of, an extended supervision order

            (a)         provide the person the subject of the order with a copy of the order as varied by the Board; and

            (b)         take all reasonable steps to explain to the person the subject of the order the terms and conditions of the order and, in particular—

                  (i)         the person's obligations under the order; and

                  (ii)         the consequences that may follow from a failure to comply with the order; and

            (c)         forward a copy of the order as varied by the Board under this section to the Supreme Court and the Commissioner of Police.

        (4)         The Parole Board cannot exercise its powers under subsection (1) or (2) of its own motion in relation to a person subject to an extended supervision order unless the person and the Attorney-General have been afforded a reasonable opportunity to make submissions to the Board on the matter, and the Board has considered any submissions so made.

        (5)         For the purposes of proceedings under subsection (1) or (2), a member of the Parole Board may summon the person the subject of the proceedings to appear before the Board.

        (6)         If a person who has been summoned to appear before the Parole Board fails to attend in compliance with the summons, the Board may—

            (a)         determine the proceedings in his or her absence; or

            (b)         direct a member of the Board to—

                  (i)         issue a warrant; or

                  (ii)         apply to a magistrate for a warrant,

for the apprehension and detention of the person for the purpose of bringing him or her before the Board.

        (7)         A magistrate must, on application under this section, issue a warrant for the apprehension and detention of a person, unless it is apparent, on the face of the application, that no reasonable grounds exist for the issue of the warrant.

        (8)         The Parole Board may, if it thinks good reason exists for doing so, cancel a warrant issued under this section at any time before its execution.
