Acknowledging the role of the criminal justice system in combatting domestic violence: assessing the recent law reform commission’s recommendations
Leahy, Susan
This article considers the recent Law Reform Commission Report on Aspects of Domestic Violence. The Law Reform Commission examined two specific aspects of criminal justice reform. First, the potential amendment of bail laws to permit for denial of bail for preventative reasons where an individual is charged with breach of a domestic violence order is examined. Second, the offence of harassment in section 10 of the Non-Fatal Offences against the Person Act 1997 is considered with a view to examining whether this offence could be reformed so as to provide better protection to victims of domestic violence.
