Brief Description

In October 2018, the Government appointed a committee to review homicide cases where the perpetrator had been a current or former partner. The aim was to find out whether, to what extent, and in what ways the public services' management of such cases had failed. The commission will make recommendations that may prevent and counter such cases from occurring in the future. The commission will submit its recommendations in April 2020.
