Robert Brokenshire’s private member’s bill has recently been passed by the South Australian Legislative Council to double the maximum compensation for victims of crime to $100,000.00.

Mr Brokenshire said that the state government has more than $100 million in the victims’ fund and this money should be returned to victims of crime in the form of increased crime compensation.

He said that 20 years ago $50,000.00 might have been enough by nowhere near enough today and that this money is just sitting there accumulating interest for the Government when it should be allocated to the victims of crime to compensate for their suffering.
