Juries Amendment Bill 2003
|Long Title||The principle purpose of this Bill is to protect the security of jurors and, thereby the integrity of the jury system. This means introducing two major reform initiatives -|
1. Provide for jury anonymity by identifying jurors by a court designated number rather than by name. 2. Change the method by which reserve jurors participate in the jury process by removing the distinction between jurors and reserve jurors so that all participate fully during the course of the trial.
|Status||Assented to 05/16/2003|
Royal Assent given 16 May 2003 as Act No. 25 of 2003. Different sections of this Act come into operation on Royal Assent and Proclamation. For details refer to Commencement Clause of the Bill (see also Assent and Commencement information for Acts)
