Crime Victims To Be Denied Justice

Victims of crime who suffer ‘minor’ injuries will no longer be able to claim compensation through the Government’s scheme, Ken Clarke the Minister of Justice announced this week.

In response to the ‘Getting It Right For Victims and Witnesses’ consultation, the justice secretary announced plans to reform the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme ‘so that it is focused on seriously injured victims of serious crime’. Mr. Clarke confirmed that the Government intends to remove injuries currently valued at less than £2,500 and significantly reduce payments for claims below £1,000 under the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme (CICA Scheme).

The new scheme has been placed before Parliament and will be assigned to a parliamentary committee for approval.
