恢復对法院应有的尊重

一个不尊重法院的人,就不会尊重法律,更不会尊重我们的司法体系。

在维州常有罪犯藐视法庭,在庭上大声叫嚣,辱骂髒话,又或拒绝法官的要求,移除脸上的遮蔽物。

自由党领袖 Matthew Guy 已宣布,如自由党明年大选中胜出,将会立法惩处藐视法庭行为,处以 14 天有期徒刑或$1,500的易科罚金。

一切改革都是整肃法制中极需的重要一环,罪犯也方能有所认知,违法、藐视警察或法庭的行为都会有相应的处罚。

只有当罪犯深深认知要尊重警察、尊重法庭和我们的司法体系,他们才能真正开始循规蹈矩的知法守法,也唯此,方能降低犯罪率,还给人民一个安全的社会。

Restoring respect in our courts

 

If offenders don’t respect the courts, they don’t respect the law.

 

Too often in Victoria, accused offenders are treating courts with contempt – swearing or shouting in court, or refusing to stand for a judge or remove face covering when asked to do so by a judge.

 

Liberal leader, Matthew Guy, has announced that if a Liberal Nationals government is elected next year, we will create a new offence of disrespecting a court, with a penalty of 14 days in jail or a fine of over $1,500.

 

This is an important part of making offenders realise that they will be punished if they break the law or behave with contempt towards the police or the courts.

 

Only when offenders know that the law, the police and the courts must be respected will they start to obey the law and crime will start to fall.
