Committals

The Victorian Law Reform Commission's report on committal and pre-trial procedures in indictable criminal matters was tabled in Parliament on 16 September 2020.

The Commission was asked by the Attorney-General to consider whether Victoria should maintain, abolish, replace or reform the present committal system, taking into account the best practice for supporting victims, processes which might reduce trauma to victims and witnesses, and to ensure procedural fairness for the accused.
