Keeping the English Legal System under review

New Victims Commissioner Appointed

leave a comment »

In the book I note that the former Victims Commissioner, Louise Casey, had decided to step down from the post. For some months it has been unclear whether she would be replaced.
However just before Christmas 2012, the Ministry of Justice announced that there would be a new Commissioner, Baroness Helen Newlove.

She brings considerable experience to the role since she has campaigned tirelessly for victims since the tragic death of her husband Garry in 2007. He was murdered outside the family home by a gang of youths, all alcohol and drug fuelled. In her role as the Government’s Champion for Active Safer Communities she has also worked with local people to make communities safer and to find solutions for local problems.

For more details of her appointment see http://www.justice.gov.uk/news/press-releases/moj/helen-newlove-unveiled-as-the-victims-commissioner
