Welcome to Issue 7 of the SA Public Sector Newsletter.
This edition includes a number of legislative changes that received assent on 11 July 2019. In particular, sections 7, 11 and 12 of the Statutes Amendment (Domestic Violence) Act 2018 (SA) come into operation from 1 September 2019.
These provisions address admissibility of recorded evidence in domestic violence proceedings, including the making or varying of intervention orders. The changes are intended to enable police to present evidence in chief from domestic violence victims via recordings, rather than in person. They also provide for interim variations to be made between a police application to vary a final intervention order and the final determination of the application.
We hope you enjoy this edition of our public sector newsletter.View PDF
