LISMORE AND BYRON BAY COURTHOUSES TO GET REMOTE WITNESS ROOMS

Lismore and Byron Bay Courthouses will soon be home to brand new remote witness rooms.

The aim is to allow vulnerable witnesses to give evidence from a secure and safe room via video link.

It aims to help those making an appearance feel more comfortable, particularly for victim-survivors of domestic, family, and sexual violence.

The rooms will be built by the end of the year.
