Soft Bail Laws
The LNP believes in tougher bail principles which rebalance the scales of justice in favour of victims not criminals.
We believe that for violent offenders, bail should be considered a privilege and not a right.
We also believe that the system needs to protect victims and the community.
All Queenslanders would have been disgusted to learn the man who brutally murdered his former partner on the Gold Coast had been released on bail despite strong protests from police.
This mother-of-four was the just the latest victim to die at the hands of their partner or former partner.
Enough is enough.
The LNP will introduce urgent legislation into State Parliament to amend bail laws and reverse the onus of proof for domestic violence matters.
Annastacia Palaszczuk says she will review bail laws, which is, quite frankly, the kind of gutless leadership we have become used to from her.
We know what happens when Labor reviews. They hold reports back, let them gather dust in George St and, worst of all, they never act.
We don’t need another review to tell us the system has failed yet another victim.
The time for talking is over – Queenslanders are demanding action.
If Annastacia Palaszczuk doesn’t deliver these important reforms and do her job, the LNP will.
