provides for the establishment of centres for the care and treatment of persons affected by alcohol or drugs. In the other states and the territories these issues are dealt with in mental health legislation.


BLOOD SAMPLES AND PERSONS ACCUSED OF SERIOUS CRIME

Under a 1990 amendment to the Crimes Act 1958 of Victoria, persons accused of indictable offences such as murder, manslaughter or sexual assault may be required to have blood samples taken for DNA testing. If the accused person refuses to consent to this test, the police can apply to a magistrates' court for authority to take the test without consent. Police may use reasonable force when assisting a doctor to take the sample. The taking of the sample is to be witnessed by an independent person or videotaped.


BOXING AND MARTIAL ARTS

The Professional Boxing Control Act 1985 in Victoria provides for the appointment of accredited medical officers and for boxers to undergo medical examinations before and after a fight. In the same state, the Martial Arts Control Act 1986 makes identical provisions for martial arts contestants.
