Victims' rights

There are 11 rights in the Victims Code.

Read the Victims Code on the Victims Information website (external link)

These rights relate to particular events or processes in the criminal justice system. It is relatively easy for victims or their representatives to recognise when responsible agencies have delivered them or not.

Victims have the right to complain to providers or an Ombudsman if they feel they have not been given any of the 11 rights in the Code. Certain government agencies are also required to report to parliament about the complaints they have received under the Act.
