New NSW laws would help abuse victims sue


Thousands of survivors would be better able to sue institutions responsible for child sex abuse under new laws to be introduced into parliament, the NSW government says.

Attorney General Mark Speakman said the reforms, which were recommended by the royal commission, would remove long-standing legal barriers and make it easier for survivors to take action against institutions that failed to keep them safe.

“Nothing can erase the devastation survivors have suffered, but these changes will help ensure institutions are more effectively held to account,” Mr Speakman said in a release on Wednesday.
