Domestic violence complainants will have extra protections when giving evidence in court, while jurors will be educated on the complexities of abuse, under proposed court reforms to be introduced in NSW Parliament this week.
Member for Manly James Griffin said the reforms would allow complainants in domestic violence criminal proceedings to give evidence in closed courts or remotely via audio-visual link.
Rugby League is ready to soar to new heights on the Northern Beaches with construction beginning today on the $33.1 million Manly Sea Eagles Centre of Excellence and Northern Grandstand at Brookvale Oval.
Acting Minister for Sport Geoff Lee said the new 3000 seat grandstand and high performance Centre of Excellence will be the envy of other clubs.
“This project will create more than 300 jobs and provide a major boost to the construction industry on the Northern Beaches,” Mr Lee said.
“It’s one of the most iconic grounds in rugby league and this project will ensure the Northern Beaches community continues to love coming to Brookie Oval.”
