Human Rights Act 2004). Queensland did not have human rights legislation at the time of the amendment to override the rule in Barbaro.
(3) The ACT Government is not aware of any cases in the ACT where the rule in Barbaro has been overridden by the courts. Prosecutors continue to have an obligation to draw the attention of the judge to the facts that it is submitted should be found, the relevant principles that should be applied and what has been done in other comparable cases. The court will have all necessary information to decide on an appropriate sentence without any need for the prosecution to proffer its view about available range.
(4) The ACT Government will consider data that indicates the number of sentence appeals to determine whether this figure is increasing and, if so, whether this can be attributed to a particular cause such as the rule in Barbaro. The ACT Government will also consider any feedback received from relevant stakeholders, such as the ACT Director of Public Prosecutions, identifying specific appeals that can be attributed to the rule in Barbaro or highlighting other concerns.
