Highlands and Islands MSP Donald Cameron is urging local people to engage in proposals for a new Victims Law.
Mr Cameron issued his call after fellow Scottish Conservative MSP Jamie Greene launched his Member’s Bill consultation to overhaul Scotland’s justice system and put victims of crime at its heart.
Mr Cameron, who has served as an advocate at the Scottish Bar, said: “I share the concern across our communities that our justice system too often neglects the victims of crime.
“The consultation for Jamie Greene’s bill provides local people with an opportunity to have their say on how we can redress this.
“We need to see people’s faith in the system restored and the consultation should play a part in achieving that.
“The consultation can be accessed at www.victimslaw.org.”
