Two new Acts of Parliament came into law in the middle of 2002.
The Parole Act 2002 and the Sentencing Act 2002 became effective on 1 July 2002 and are now very important parts of our criminal system in New Zealand.
Some major changes have taken place. There are now different parole provisions.
We therefore suggest that you enter our website and access all of those sites relating to criminal law and, in particular, you can visit our site entitled
We give you direct access to both Acts below. We suggest you visit all of our related sites in the above box and read all the information carefully.
We provide you with a direct link to the two important Acts . . . .
. . . Parole Act 2002
. . . Sentencing Act 2002
We also provide you with a direct link to the Government legislation site where you can look up ALL Acts of Parliament and Regulations and Rules. An Act is also known as a Statute. A Regulation is also sometimes known as a Rule. This Government legislation site is still going through some teething problems. But you will be able to access all legislation and find specific Acts and Rules and individual sections.
Local & Private Acts
This site will give a full overview of the proposed new laws and will be updated as soon as the Acts are passed.
