Critique of the Communal Violence

Date: 01/06/2007

Document: Read the full booklet here.

Edited by Colin Gonsalves.
The Communal Violence Bill is an astonishingly poor draft that has ignored the two drafts suggested by civil society groups after extensive consultations with NGOs.The focus is on increasing police power and not on empowering civil society to initiate and control prosecutions when communal crimes occur. Given that government is the principal wrongdoer in many instances the thrust of the legislation is misplaced, according to the critique.
