NSW to allow DV victims to give evidence in court via video

NEW South Wales will be the first Australian state to allow domestic violence victims to give evidence in court via video.

The new law, which will also allow video footage of distraught victims at the scene to be played in court, will come into effect on Monday.

In NSW courts, video statements can replace written statements.

The Australian Medical Association also launched a new resource at the weekend to help doctors provide better support for domestic violence victims.

The doctors' resource will include information about specialist support services including mental health, drug and alcohol, legal, family support and child protection.
