Statement From Attorney-General Jill Hennessy


Attributable to Attorney-General Jill Hennessy

We are taking immediate action to ensure victim-survivors of sexual abuse have a stronger voice.

The voices of victim-survivors are a powerful and important part of the justice system. Their expertise is invaluable as we make these urgent changes.

We are working with Victorian courts to ensure that, in the interim, there is a simple process in place for victim-survivors to apply for permission to self-identify and talk publicly, as well as broader advice and assistance service to ensure all victims are supported through this.
