Victorian Justice Party Launch
Derryn Hinch's Justice Party will stand candidates in both Victorian Houses of Parliament in this year's state election.
Hinch, who founded the party and became it's first senator at last year's federal election, said the time was right to tackle state issues.
'We need to get representation here in Victoria, especially the Upper House, because so many Law and Order issues are state issues,' he said.
"Early parole, too much bail too easily, magistrates and judges still being too soft on child abuse and child pornography crimes. We need to be there so people's voices can be heard. With gangs, home invasions, the disgusting trade in child brides, it's never been more urgent".
Hinch said his federal presence was also vital.
'If I hadn't gone to Canberra last year, the Government would not have passed new passport legislation that bans convicted paedophiles on the Child Sex Offenders Register from going on child rape holidays in places like the Phillipines, Thailand and Cambodia. We stopped one just last month where he had a dual citizenship with New Zealand.'
