Ensure equal rights for disabled people when interacting with the Justice System

Ensure equal rights for disabled people when interacting with the Justice System so people aren’t disadvantaged or treated unfairly due to their disability. Whether in the court system or the within the Department of Corrections there is monitoring to ensure disabled people have their needs accommodated

Why the contribution is important

While it is unlawful to treat disabled people unfairly due to their disability ether in the Justice System or the Department of Corrections, evidence shows that disabled people are not accommodated for. Incidents range from lack of access to NZSL interpreters in court to wheelchair access in prisons.
