4 This right does not appear to be limited by the proposed amendment to include section 161A(1) as an alternative verdict to manslaughter under section 316(2). The amendment to section 316(2) does not impact on a persons ability to respond to the allegations made against them, to advocate for why they should be shown leniency by the sentencing court if found guilty, or to have their matters determined consistent with the rules of procedural fairness, criminal procedure and sentencing laws. CONCLUSION This Bill is compatible with the human rights and freedoms recognised or declared in the international instruments listed in section 3 of the Human Rights (Parliamentary Scrutiny) Act 2011 (Cth).
