Social Justice Alliance Campaign (WA Residents Only)
To the President and Members of the Legislative Council of the Parliament of Western Australia in Parliament assembled.
On 1 August 2008, the Homicide Act 2008 was amended to introduce changes in the context of domestic homicide where there has been a history of violence by either the deceased or the accused.
We the undersigned residents of Western Australia call on the State Government to:
(1) Review the imprisonment of women who are currently serving life sentences for murder where these changes to the said Act apply, and to take whatever action is required to ensure these women are afforded justice; and
(2) To enact legislative changes to ensure that fairness and justice is properly served in relation to domestic homicide where there has been a history of violence by either the deceased or the accused.
And your petitioners as in duty bound, will ever pray.
