A 'national disgrace': age of criminal responsibility well below international standard

Fire damage at The Don Dale Detention Centre Darwin, Wednesday, November 7, 2018.

The Northern Territory government is being urged to uphold its pledge to increase the age of criminal responsibility to at least 12 years of age. Almost a year on from its promise, the age of criminal responsibility remains at 10. It's the same age in all Australia's states and territories - four years below the international standard. Legal services and advocates are calling it "a national disgrace".
