Victorian government reach compromise on bail laws | Englishheadline


Victoria’s government has reached a compromise to pass bail laws through state parliament.

The state government has resisted pressure to amend their proposed bail law reforms after increased reporting on crimes allegedly committed by offenders who were on bail.

The reforms are designed to address concerns current bail laws disproportionately affect sections of the community – including Indigenous Australians.

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has insisted he will push ahead with the plan despite growing calls to do more to protect public safety.

The bill will be debated and the amendments discussed when parliament returns in October.
