Parallel Justice for Victims of Crime
by Eric Assur Not too many years ago Restorative Justice (RJ) was introduced, or artfully expounded on, by Howard Zehr. Now we have what appears to be a similarly unique view of the victim of crime topic through new and different lenses. The author, a seasoned and well credentialed victim advocate, and the “National Center” now offer an enlightening commentary and daunting challenge regarding the state of victim services. The book recommends a new way to do business, a paradigm shift to what is now labeled, Parallel Justice (PJ).

File McElrea, FWM. Justice in the Community: The New Zealand Experience
Under the Children Young Persons and Their Families Act 1989 offending by "young persons" - ie young people of at least 14 years of age but under 17 - is the jurisdiction of a specialist Youth Court. Potentially this court can deal with all offences except murder and manslaughter, although very serious offences such as rape are usually referred on to the adult courts. In deciding whether a disputed charge is proved the adversary system is maintained in full (with one exception, concerning pleading, which I mention later), however in disposing of admitted or proved offences a radically new system is in force. The key component is the Family Group Conference ("FGC"), convened and facilitated by a Youth Justice Coordinator, a Department of Social Welfare employee.

File Wright, Martin. 2004. The rights and needs of victims in the criminal justice process. Published in: H. Kaptein and M Malsch, eds. Crime, victims and justice: essays on principles and practice. Aldershot: Ashgate, 2004.
Let us begin by thinking about the whole picture: not only restorative justice, but the purpose of the criminal law, which I assume to be to create a just and stable society. I will not say much about the problems of conventional justice, which we all know, or the theory of restorative justice; I will concentrate on how it could work in practice, and I hope that the theory will be reflected by the practice.

'Why I must speak out to stop my rapist being freed'
from the article by David Barrett in the Telegraph: After Dr Claire Chung was raped by a stranger at knifepoint, she took two extraordinary and courageous steps. Firstly, she confronted him face to face after his conviction, as part of a programme known as “restorative justice”. Then she waived her anonymity, speaking of the decision she took to face the man who had attacked her. Now she is speaking out again, this time to voice her concerns at a parole system which could free Stephen Allen Gale early next year.
