Guidance for members and victims of crime on the Parole Board's duties towards victims who give personal statements at oral hearings.
The Parole Board must treat all victims of crime with sensitivity and respect and give them every chance to take part in oral hearings as part of the parole process.
This guidance is for both Parole Board members and victims of crime who are taking part in a parole review. It covers the Parole Board’s responsibilities and the victim’s rights at each stage of the oral hearing process.
There is also an information booklet specifically for victims of crime published in May 2015, which can be foud here.
