Bleijie strengthens swathe of penalties and sentences

Swathe of increases in penalties and sentences

Amy Remeikis writes in the Brisbane Times (2711.14) that ‘Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie finished the year the way he started it – by submitting a prolific amount of legislation to the Queensland Parliament.

While still short of amending as many acts as his mega-bill, which he introduced and passed earlier this year, the Justice and Other Legislation Amendment Bill strengthens more penalties and sentences, “advances the government’s red tape reduction, public sector renewal and regulatory burden agendas” and stops convicted criminals from contacting their victims.’
