a new kind of politics
The Peace Party of the United Kingdom

Justice and Rehabilitation

The Peace Party would:

  • Establish laws based on the basic human rights as defined by the European Convention which is based on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
  • Support the development of policing committees, under local control, in each community/neighbourhood/local authority under the guidance of parliament – there must not be a “police state”.
  • Increase the number of trained civilian workers to support police officers.
  • Focus on the rehabilitation of offenders by, for example, increasing community service and extending the use of restorative justice, providing ample opportunity for criminals to fully understand the effects of her/his offence.
  • Use imprisonment for an appropriate amount of time but only for those who have committed the most serious offences and for which other methods of correction or rehabilitation have failed or are unsuitable.
  • Provide full care for the victims of crime to enable them to recover from the trauma involved.
  • Provide maximum support for research into crime to understand and adjust the attitudes and social conditions that lead to it.
  • Replace gradually the amount of CCTV on the streets with improved lighting.
  • Limit phone tapping and hacking into mobile phones and other electronic communication.
  • Destroy DNA, fingerprints and other information about those not found guilty of an offence.
  • Strengthen commitment to the International Criminal Court, a permanent tribunal set up in 2002, governed by the “Assembly of State Parties” to prosecute individuals for genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes and crimes of aggression.
