Decades-overdue reform to fines enforcement to lead to better outcomes for vulnerable Western Australians: Greens

Greens spokesperson for Corrective Services and Justice Hon Alison Xamon MLC is today pleased to support long-overdue reform to fines enforcement laws, which will, among other changes to the law, make imprisonment for fine default an absolute last resort.

Ms Xamon said she had advocated for many years for an overhaul of the fines enforcement system, not least because it formed a key recommendation in the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody 30 years ago.
