Criminal Compensation Seminars

The Accountability & Reparation Investigation of the IICSA will tomorrow (21 February) hold seminars to consider issues raised in the replies to the consultation on criminal compensation. The seminars will be streamed live on You Tube and transcripts will be published.

The consultation asked questions about reparation; the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme (CICS); Criminal Compensation Orders; reform and support. It is not surprising that the responses showed that there is no one size fits all model and there are a variety of outcomes which are sought.

The topics to be discussed at the seminars are:

  • Introduction to Criminal Compensation
  • Eligibility for awards under CICS
  • The Administration of CICS
  • Reform

The discussions at these seminars will contribute to the final report of this investigation but further stakeholder contributions will be sought during the course of 2017.
