Consultation Paper: Response to the High Court decision in Crofts

Consultation is now closed.

This Consultation Paper is being released for discussion purposes and to elicit public comment on a proposed amendment to the Crofts warning.  

The Department of the Attorney-General and Justice recommends in the Consultation Paper that the Northern Territory adopt the amendment endorsed by the Family Violence – A National Legal Response (Australian Law Reform Commission Report 114, November 2010), which will restore a judge’s discretion not to issue a Crofts warning.

Any views expressed are not to be taken to represent the views of the Northern Territory Government. We are seeking your comments and feedback (no matter how brief) on the proposed reform.
