New Bail law change

August 28, 2013 at 1:01 PM


Serious violent, sexual or drug offenders who want bail must now tell the Judge how the community is safe when s/he is released on bail. Up till now the Crown must tell the court why the offender should be locked up.

Laxity in the bail law was blamed for the murder of Auckland teenager Christine Marceu by Akshay Chand who was out on bail at the time of the murder.

The new law change was passed today 102 votes to 19. The Maori Party, Greens, Mana and Brendan Horan opposed it.
