  • Victims’ consultation launches

    Created: 17/05/2022

    A consultation on improving victims’ experiences of the justice system, with a particular focus on sexual offences, has opened.

    It takes forward the work of the Victims Taskforce and Programme for Government commitments to establish a Victims’ Commissioner, introduce a statutory right to anonymity for complainers in sexual offence cases and carefully consider the recommendations from Lady Dorrian’s Review into the management of sexual offence cases.

    The 12 week consultation is part of a wide-ranging programme of work to transform the justice system and deliver the Scottish Government’s new Vision for Justice in Scotland.

    The consultation is open for views here and closes on 05 August 2022.
