Criminal Justice, Offender Management, Sentencing and Domestic Abuse

Closed 20 Aug 2018

Opened 25 Jun 2018


The Department of Home Affairs is consulting on three Bills that arise out of the Criminal Justice Strategy [GD 0061/12] (the Strategy), which was published, consulted upon and then received at the December 2012 sitting of Tynwald. 

This consultation will play an important part both in implementing the Strategy and in further directing the modernisation of criminal justice in the Isle of Man.

Why We Are Consulting

In the important area of criminal justice, and in terms of addressing crimes associated with domestic abuse, we believe it is vital to offer an opportunity for as many persons from as many areas of community life and experience as possible to put forward their views on the forthcoming legislation. 

All views that are expressed will help to improve the legislation proposed before introduction into the legislature.

What Happens Next

The Department will consider all the responses to the consultation and use them to assist it in determining the final form and content of each of the three Bills. It is currently envisaged that, subject to any substantive changes having to be made, all three Bills will be submitted for introduction into the House of Keys by Christmas 2018.
