Attorney General Joe Berinson has called on the Opposition parties to stop misrepresenting the facts on law and order.
"Law and order should not be allowed to degenerate into election gimmicks which are ill-conceived, damaging and simply untrue," he said.
"Only today we have had Cheryl Edwardes and George Cash state categorically that there is no waiting room for victims at the new Childrens' Court, forcing victims and offenders together," he said.
"This is patently untrue. We not only have two separate waiting rooms, but also a closed-circuit television room to allow witnesses and victims to observe and give evidence at trials without being visible to the offender.
"Another example of irresponsibility is the statement by Cheryl Edwardes that the Opposition would require all sex offenders to participate in treatment programs, as if this would provide a magic cure.
"This is frighteningly simplistic and impractical. All evidence indicates that, as with alcoholics, nothing would be gained by compulsion. The person must be willing to work with counsellors to gain any benefit."
Mr Berinson said the Government already had treatment programs in place for offenders which were acknowledged as very effective and ahead of the rest of the country.
"Mrs Edwardes has also promised longer prison sentences for violent offenders, disregarding the fact that the Government has already greatly increased penalties, without any suggestion from the Opposition at the time that they should be increased even further," he said.
"She calls for the minimum penalty for wilful murder to be lifted from 20 to 30 years, when the Government has already made provision for literal whole-of-life sentences.
"Law and order issues have not just suddenly been discovered. Enormous work has been done by the Government, and more changes are planned. I would urge the Opposition to stick to the truth."
