Victims' Special Claims Tribunal

The Victims’ Special Claims Tribunal hears victims’ claims and decides whether they are entitled to any compensation.

The Victims' Special Claims Tribunal hears claims from victims of crime and decides whether they are entitled to compensation.

When a prisoner or offender is awarded compensation for wrongs that occur in the corrections or criminal justice systems, their victims have the opportunity to make a claim.

A victim's claim for compensation isn't restricted to the amount of money held in the trust account and compensation awarded may exceed the amount in the account.
