Prisoners' Rights: Submission on draft Corrections Regulations 2009 (Vic)

In February 2009, the HRLRC made a Submission in response to a Corrections Regulations Exposure Draft 2009 (Vic) released by Corrections Victoria.  The current Corrections Regulations 1998 are due to sunset in May 2009.  The Proposed Regulations, together with a Regulatory Impact Statement, were released for public comment on 22 January 2009. The submission addresses aspects of the Proposed Regulations that the HRLRC considers do not comply with established international and comparative jurisprudence relating to the treatment of prisoners.
