star this property answer text <p /> <p>The Government believes it is important that people consider what they want to happen to their property when they die. I would encourage people of all ages to ensure they have properly considered making a will so that, if the worst happens, their property is passed on in line with their wishes. We are currently considering what steps we can take to raise awareness of the importance of making a will.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p /> <p>The Government is absolutely clear that abusive and threatening behaviour online is totally unacceptable.</p><p> </p><p>There is a number of offences which may be committed by those abusing others on social media. Internet communication which is grossly offensive or menacing may fall under section 127 of the Communications Act 2003. Sending indecent, grossly offensive or threatening material to another with the purpose of causing distress or anxiety to a person to whom the material is communicated, including by means of the internet, is also an offence under the Malicious Communications Act 1988.</p><p> </p><p>Internet abuse could also amount to an offence under the Protection from Harassment Act 1997 if its distribution is carried out as part of a ‘course of conduct’ which alarms a person or causes distress. Under section 4 of that Act, it is also an offence to pursue a course of conduct that repeatedly puts someone in fear of violence.</p><p> </p><p>Changes to the law being taken forward in the Criminal Justice and Courts Bill will increase the maximum penalty for offences under the Malicious Communications Act 1988 to 2 years imprisonment, and extend the time within which prosecutions under section 127 of the Communications Act 2003 may be brought, to up to three years, as opposed to the current six month limit.</p><p>These steps will help to ensure that people who commit these awful crimes are prosecuted and properly punished.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Sexual Offences (Amendment) Act 1992 prohibits the publication of any information that is likely to lead to a person being identified as the victim of an alleged sexual offence, from the point at which the allegation has been made. But this prohibition does not prevent the complainant’s name from being used in court and therefore would not serve to conceal it from the defendant (if it was not already known to him). In exceptional circumstances a court may make a witness anonymity order under sections 86 to 90 of the Coroners and Justice Act 2009. Such an order prevents the disclosure of the identity of a witness (including the complainant) or any information that might allow the witness to be identified in or in connection with the proceedings except to the judge and jury or magistrates.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p> </p><p> </p><p>The Government is committed to ensuring that restorative justice is victim-focused, of a good quality and available at all stages of the criminal justice system across England and Wales.</p><p> </p><p>Restorative justice is a process that can be used at any stage of the criminal justice system, either alongside or as part of a formal out of court disposal or sentence. Restorative justice is potentially available for any offence, provided both the victim and offender consent and have been assessed as suitable by a trained facilitator. The use of restorative justice should not lead to offenders escaping punishment and we expect crimes of a serious nature to continue to be progressed through the courts.</p><p> </p><p>Information about the numbers of victims or offenders who are invited to participate in a restorative justice programme, or take up that offer, is not collated centrally. Statistics on non-custodial and custodial sentences are published quarterly by the Ministry of Justice and are available at <a href="http://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/ministry-of-justice/about/statistics" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/government/organisations/ministry-of-justice/about/statistics</a>.</p>
