As a survivor of domestic abuse im calling for changes to be made to the justice system when it comes to treating victims. When justice isn't served we as victims don't even have the rights to appeal a judges decision because our cases don't hear at crown court they go to magistrates which isn't fair at all and having the right to appeal should be standard human rights. If a defendant can appeal a judges decision on a sentence, why are victims not allowed to have an input? Police and CPS say they take domestic violence seriously, but when victims finally seek the courage to come forward and share it with the justice system, no justice is served? It just doesn't add up.
