Justice for WA’s mentally impaired is long overdue: Greens

Greens spokesperson for Mental Health and Disability Hon Alison Xamon MLC has called on the Attorney General to act on his promises to reform the heinous Criminal  Law (Mentally Impaired Accused) Act as a matter of urgency, and to ensure that these reforms apply equally to people already being held under the Act.

“Ever since this Government was elected the Attorney General has been saying that the reform of this draconian legislation is a priority, yet 2 years have passed and we still have not seen a bill,” Ms Xamon said during a speech in Parliament last night.
