More Support For Victims of Crime

I bet you didn't realise that the 25th of October is the European day of civil justice?

'In establishing a Civil Justice Day, the aim of the European Commission and the Council of Europe was to create a symbolic event, a date for recalling that justice is first and foremost a service to citizens which enables them to settle their private disputes and assert their rights.'

This also coincides with the Inside Justice Week, which is running across England and Wales between 17-23 October 2005.

This is all a little strange when you read in the paper over the last few days that Prisons are Overcrowding - Early Release Plans and that Clarke Plans to Privatise Probation Services

Now tell me how all this is delivering 'justice' to victims of crime?
