What’s this about?
The review of amendments will determine whether the policy objectives of those amendments remain valid and whether the terms of the amendments remain appropriate for securing those objectives.
The policy objectives of the amendments include:
- enabling a significant majority of jurors to return a guilty or not guilty verdict in certain circumstances in order to avoid the inconvenience, cost and delay of a hung jury for criminal justice system participants
- additional trauma for victims, and any associated reduction in public confidence in the criminal justice system.
