Restorative justice-first phase review

Paper and statement by minister

MR CORBELL (Molonglo—Attorney-General, Minister for Police and Emergency Services and Minister for Planning): For the information of members, I present the following paper:

Crimes (Restorative Justice) Act, pursuant to section 75—Restorative justice—First phase review.

I ask for leave to make a statement in relation to the paper.

Leave granted.

MR CORBELL: Today, I have presented a report on the first phase review of restorative justice. In 2004, the Stanhope government introduced legislation that saw the expansion of restorative justice options for the criminal justice system in the ACT. This was the fulfilment of a promise the Labor Party had made to the community as part of its 2001 election platform. It was also a key crime prevention and sentencing strategy of the ACT criminal justice strategic plan 2002-05.

The model of restorative justice adopted in the ACT was formed after extensive consultation with all relevant government and justice sector agencies as well as agencies in the community sector. Experts in the field of restorative justice also assisted my department to finalise the model.
