An offender`s participation in restorative justice mediation is one of the examples of restorative conditions listed in Appendix B of the Director`s Parole Alert Guide (7th edition: April 2013). Prosecutors should consider all the reasons given by the victim to support the idea that the offence should be prosecuted (or should not be prosecuted at all). For example, the victim can provide further information about the context or effects of the offence. While victims` opinions are important, they do not serve as a veto for distraction or prosecution. While the Victims` Code allows victims of domestic violence to participate in restorative justice techniques, the policy of the National Police Chief`s Council (NPCC) does not support the use of restorative justice in these cases.
