‘Three Strikes’ Law to Remain
New Zealand First Leader, Winston Peters, welcomes the work the Justice Minister is undertaking in the criminal justice sector.
As part of his work the Justice Minister is developing a range of options for criminal justice sector reform. One recommendation was to repeal the three strikes legislation. This recommendation was included in a paper due to go before Cabinet today.
“New Zealand First has welcomed the Justice Minister’s decision to not proceed with recommendations to Cabinet today. The caucus looks forward to working with him on achieving a balanced reform package,” says Mr Peters.
The New Zealand First caucus will consider its legislative position on the three strikes repeal at its caucus meeting tomorrow.
