Major Indictable Reform Outcomes

Following extensive consultation, the Summary Procedure (Indictable Offences) Amendment Bill 2016 has been introduced to Parliament.

The Bill proposes changes to court processes to focus on early resolution and case disclosure. By reducing lengthy delays, the Bill aims to ease the burden on victims of crime and witnesses. In a fundamental change, both prosecution and defence will be required to prepare case statements so the issues in dispute can be identified earlier.
