Thu 19 Apr 2018

Today Newsroom reported that the New Zealand Family Court has made frequent inappropriate comments about domestic violence victims. For example, a judge concluded that a victim was a "successful school teacher" and "a robust and resilient person" and therefore "did not have an ongoing need for protection". This was after the victim had suffered whiplash from being bodyslammed by her former partner. In response to this report, Jemima spoke with Dr Henry Kha who is a family law lecturer in the Faculty of Law at UoA. They talked about how domestic violence is responded to in the law, why victim-blaming comments made by the Family Court matter and how these negative patterns will change. If you're ever in need of help for a domesic violence issue, please call Womens Refuge at 0800 733 843 or HELP at (09) 623 1700.
