Project Overview

Part 8 of the Crimes Act 1961 deals with crimes against the person. The project reviewed the adequacy and coherence of the current offence provisions, considered whether there were any gaps in them and revised maximum penalty levels. The project was completed in 2009 when a report and draft bill were provided to the Minister of Justice.
