victim support


Comparative law notes


In China, there is no government compensation scheme to cover physicial or psychologicial injuries suffered as a result of a violent crime. However it is possible to attach a civil claim for compensation to the criminal case. In Hong Kong, victim support is provided under the Criminal and Law Enforcement Injuries Compensation (CLEIC) Scheme (暴力及执法伤亡赔偿计划). The scheme provides financial assistance to victims (or their dependants) who are injured, disabled or killed as a result of criminal violence, or being accidentally injured by a law enforcement officer. The scheme is non-means tested and payment would be made from public funds.
