Practice Direction 5 of 2020

This Practice Direction is issued pursuant to Section 592 of the Children, Youth and Families Act 2005 and introduces temporary measures necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

In order to ensure that unopposed applications for variation of bail can be heard and determined in a timely manner during the COVID‑19 pandemic, this Practice Direction introduces an alternative procedure for such unopposed applications consistent with the emergency health measures currently in place in Victoria. This Practice Direction took effect from 5 May 2020 and was re-issued on 20 November 2020 with the launch of eDocs.
