Bereaved by Homicide: Your rights as the victim of a serious crime and of a homicide

New Zealand law recognises some crimes have a particularly serious impact on the victim. Victims of some serious crimes are given special recognition under the law.

This applies if the offence resulted in the death of someone in your immediate family/whānau.
