Pre- Trial Diversion

Pre-Trial Diversion

Pre Trial Diversion programme is the channeling of cases from the formal criminal justice system inorder to allow children children who have committed non serious offences become responsible and accountable for their actions without necessarily getting a criminal record.


To make children in conflict with the law, to become more responsible for and accountable for their actions
To offer an opportunity for reparation (compensation)
To prevent children from receiving a criminal record early in their lives and being labeled as criminals
To open the judicial process for educational and rehabilitative procedures.
To come into play for the benefit of all parties affected by the offence
To some extent, to lessen the caseload in the courts
