ACT Welcomes Sentencing Review

The ACT party welcomes the proposal by the Minister of Justice to review sentences, said ACT Leader Hon Richard Prebble.

“Judges should be able to take into account aggravating factors when sentencing.

“ACT points out that the real outrage in the justice system is not the court sentences but the actions of politicians and bureaucrats in releasing offenders early in parole.

“New Zealand’s loose and under-resourced parole scheme doesn’t work,” said Hon Richard Prebble.
