自由党会更倾听犯罪受害者的声音

果自由国家党联盟政府于 11月在维州顺利当选,将推动修法,确保犯罪受害者能参与有关囚犯是否能假释出狱的一系列决定。

 

假释是指罪犯尚未服完全部刑期前,就被释放出狱的决议,主要为了让犯罪人在严格条件控管下,学习重新融入社区生活,不再重蹈复辙。

 

然则,当犯罪者被释放出狱时,恐导致受害者生活在恐惧之中,担心犯罪人将再次袭击他们。

 

倾听受害人的声音,让他们参与犯罪人假释出狱的决定,不只可让弱势的声音被听见,更能妥善处理假释决议,确保犯罪受害者能得到更周全的保护。

Liberals to give more say to crime victims

 

If a Liberal Nationals government is elected in Victoria in November, it will change the law to ensure that a victim of crime is involved in every decision on whether to let a prisoner out of jail on parole.

 

Parole is when an offender is let out of jail before they have served their full sentence.  This is designed to let offenders learn to live in the community without re-offending, on strict conditions.

 

However, when a criminal is let out of jail, this can cause their victims to live in fear of the offender attacking them again.

 

Having a victim of crime involved in all parole decisions will help ensure the effects of parole on victims are fully considered, and victims are properly protected, before any criminals are let out of jail early.
