Cross-border Justice Bill 2007


Bill No.236

SynopsisThis Bill seeks to break down the barriers that the borders create in the administration of justice in the cross-border region. The Bill will enable Western Australia to participate in cross-border justice schemes in conjunction with South Australia and the Northern Territory.

For cross-border schemes to operate, it will be necessary for each jurisdiction to have corresponding laws. Therefore the Bill will also serve as a model to be followed by the governments of South Australia and the Northern Territory.
