Criminal Justice Bill

The Justice Committee successfully requested a extension to scrutinise the Criminal Justice Bill, on 24 September 2012.

The bill covers three areas of criminal law; the sex offenders register, human trafficking, and fingerprints and DNA profiling.

It aims to introduce new offences in connection with human trafficking in line with European legislation.
