All hearings conducted within the Victims of Crime Assistance Tribunal are digitally recorded. If you wish to obtain a copy of the recordings you will need to contact the relevant Tribunal venue and speak to the VOCAT registrar of that Tribunal.
The Tribunal retains all recordings for a period of 12 months from the date of hearing. If a party to the proceeding, being the applicant or their legal representative (or any other person or organisation who has received special permission) has requested the recording, they are retained for a period of 2 years from the date of hearing.
Only parties to the Tribunal proceedings are permitted to obtain a copy of the recording. If any other party wishes to obtain a copy of the recording, a written request is to be forwarded for consideration by the Tribunal.
Tribunal staff endeavour to attend to all audio copy requests expeditiously, however you will have to contact the relevant venue to ascertain how long it will take to fulfil your request.
