Review of the Victims of Crime Assistance Act 1996: supplementary consultation paper

31 Aug 2017
Description

On 7 July 2017 pursuant to section 5(2)(a) of the Victorian Law Reform Commission Act 2000, the Attorney-General, the Hon. Martin Pakula MP, provided the Victorian Law Reform Commission with supplementary terms of reference for the review on family violence and the Victims of Crime Assistance Act 1996 (the Act). 

The supplementary terms of reference are additional to the terms of reference provided by the Attorney-General on 22 December 2016. 

The supplementary terms of reference ask the Commission to expand the first reference to consider the operation and effectiveness of the Act and the Victims of Crime Assistance Tribunal (VOCAT) for all victims, including family violence victims. The Attorney-General has revised the reporting date for this reference to 27 July 2018. 

The Commission has published a supplementary consultation paper based on the supplementary terms of reference. The paper includes questions for response by the public and stakeholders.

Submissions are invited in response by 31 October 2017.
