Calls for Forensic Services to be Made More Accessible


The Canberra Liberals have called for forensic services to be more accessible for victims of sexual assault.

The ACT opposition will move a motion in the Legislative Assembly today calling on the government to ensure forensic sampling and information about what to do in the event of a sexual assault is made easily available.

They will also echo calls for more funding for the Canberra Rape Crisis Service, which is currently only funded to have a support person available from 7am to 11pm daily.
