Views sought on new Sexual Offences Bill

Tue, 11 Dec 2018

A consultation has been launched on proposals to modernise the Sexual Offences and Obscene Publications Bill.

Government say the new bill designed to modernise the Island’s laws on sex offences, obscene publications, indecent publications and pornography.
Sexual offence laws have not been updated for more than a decade, leading to potential gaps in protection for and services to victims. 

Views and opinions are being sought in a number of areas to be covered by the proposed Bill.

The public consultation can be accessed on the Government’s Consultation Hub and runs until 4th February 2019.
