Restorative justice system and the rights of aboriginal and juvenile offenders and victims: An appraisal of the statutes of developed countries
Sohail Amjad, Nagina Riaz
Aboriginal and Juvenile offenders and victims have suffered more then they deserved as an offender for the crime or offence on the one hand and as a victim for their rights on the other hand. The story of their suffering is been carried on from centuries but no strategy was made to secure them like the adult and normal citizens of communities. Aboriginal women specially had been targeted at even the world’s most educated and developed societies due to lack of legislation and social security. Juvenile offenders must be treated differently than the adult offenders whether they are in prison or in probation for their future growth and to avoid the impact of intentional or intentional offence committed by him or he being the victim of a crime. This paper throws light on the statutes of different countries where they have tried to provide legal assistance and a distinct status to Aboriginal female and young offenders and such other recommendations are in the development of legislation to provide them with an ideal environment where they will be restored to societies without an impact of crime on them and to assure the community of non occurrence of such offences from them and towards them.
