Prisoners' Rights: 'High-Risk Offenders' - Submission on Post-Sentence Supervision and Detention

On 13 February 2007, the Human Rights Law Resource Centre made a submission to the Victorian Sentencing Advisory Council in response to their Discussion and Options Paper, entitled High-Risk Offenders: Post-Sentence Supervision and Detention. As the Paper identifies, a scheme of post-sentence supervision and detention may be incompatible with or infringe a range of human rights under both international human rights law (particularly the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights) and domestic human rights law (particularly the Victorian Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities).
