Change sex trials!

August 14, 2013 at 6:05 PM

In a Auckland seminar this week advocates for sex abuse and rape victims continue to ask government to change from adversarial trials to inquisitorial court processes. They agree this will help victims of sex crimes from being revictimised in a court trial ordeal where they are cross-examined.

While minister Judith Collins has halted a Law Reform process to make this change due to legal and procedural complications.

Others feel that restorative justice can be a useful approach because 'most victims' overriding concern was to stop a repeat of the offending, rather than to seek punishment' says Paulette Benton-Greig of Project Restore.
