Call for victims of crime shake-up

Call for victims of crime shake-up

By Victorian Law Reform Commission

Criminal Procedure 


The latest Victorian Law Reform Commission (VLRC) report has called for a major shake-up of the way assistance is provided to victims of crime who have suffered an injury as a result of a criminal act. The recommended reforms in the VLRC’s Review of the Victims of Crime Assistance Act 1996 place the needs of victims firmly at the centre. Currently, support is provided through the Victims of Crime Assistance Tribunal (VOCAT) within the Magistrates’ Court of Victoria. The VLRC has recommended VOCAT be abolished, a new Act passed, and a new administrative scheme set up to provide financial and practical assistance, run from the Office of the Victims of Crime Commissioner. The new scheme should be separate from the criminal court system and should not involve perpetrators of crime.
