I'm not sure what you're asking, can you rephrase? Perhaps add a few facts to put it into context?
Do you have a copy of the order that you can attach in PDF format? The answer to this really depends on the exact wording of the order.
The general rule is that the judge's order applies everywhere. Therefore, if the judge tells you that you are on probation and not to consume any alcohol and you are in Australia and are drinking then the judge can revoke your probation.
There are, of course, problems with them being able to prove you are drinking.
The reason they can is because you aren't being punished for violating a criminal statute, you are being punished for the failure to follow a judge's order. In addition, the burden of proof is lower.
I am assuming this is for a probation or parole issue but it could also apply to a bond issue.
You're very welcome.
