Blanket Ban On Criminals Claiming Compensation Is Wrong Approach

February 6, 2012

From End Violence Against Women:
Blanket Ban On Criminals Claiming Compensation Is Wrong Approach:
The Government is proposing to reform the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme and make criminals contribute to the cost of victims’ services. Whilst we welcome a consultation on the complex and arbitrary compensation scheme, we do not support cost-cutting measures that will exclude many victims from claiming compensation and do nothing to plug the gaps in provision for women who experience sexual or domestic violence, forced marriage or other crimes.
