Civil Juries Charge Book updated.

The Civil Juries Charge Book has been updated in response to the Court of Appeal decision of Gebrehiwot v State of Victoria. 

In Gebrehiwot, the Court of Appeal outlined the matters that must be included in a jury direction in police battery trials, where lawful arrest is raised as a defence. 

We have now updated the Battery charge in the Civil Juries Charge Book, to incorporate this guidance and to streamline the language and structure of the charge as a whole.
