​Media Statement re: Minchinbury Assault

Issued: Wednesday, 7 May 2014

As Attorney General I note that the NSW Government’s new Assault Causing Death (the “One Punch”) law has made this charge available to be laid by the NSW Police Force.

The matter will now proceed through the usual processes of the justice system.

It is inappropriate for me as Attorney to comment further as the matter is now before the court.
