Attorney-General, George Brandis, and Minister for Human Services, Alan Tudge, today announce the Turnbull Government has declared the attack in Berlin, Germany on 19 December 2016 a 'terrorist act'. This declaration means eligible Australian residents harmed as a direct result of this terrorist attack may be able to seek a one-off payment of up to $75,000 through the Australian Victim of Terrorism Overseas Payment (AVTOP) scheme. On the evening of 19 December 2016, a truck was driven through the Christmas market in Breitscheidplatz, injuring and killing innocent civilians. This terrorist attack killed 12 people and injured dozens.
