Legistrative Council E-Petitions

E-petition Number
280
Title
Abolish suppression orders
Grievance
The Petition of certain citizens of the State of Victoria draws to the attention of the Legislative Council that suppression orders are still in force on the identity of perpetrators of crimes against children and violent crimes.

The judiciary should not be able to provide endless anonymity for criminals. Only victims of crime and their families may choose anonymity. Once convicted of crimes that identify a person as a danger to the community and once legal avenues of appeal are exhausted, the identity of the criminal should be legally known.
Action
The petitioners therefore request that the Legislative Council call on the Government to abolish suppression orders entirely.
