Reporting rape/sexual assault is vital and it needs to be made easier for any victim to report it and get the right support in all areas. Good legal help is so important and if someone cannot afford it then it should be given freely. It must be awful to suffer a rape and not get justice and the criminal locked up to keep women safe.

I'd like to know why it is thought all right to put a victim in a room without refreshments, breaks or entertainment for even a half hour let alone longer. I'd like to know why somebody out there thinks it is just fine that if a person has money for a lawyer then a crime will be taken seriously and if not the crime won't even be dealt with.

It is a horrible crime; and the failure to prosecute more in than a fraction of complaints made simply encourages evil-doers. It a certain penalty (which i need not mention) were available, in extreme cases, e.g. gang action, additional violence or torture,, there would be a considerable deterrent.

Free and independent lawyers will ensure that all survivors of rape have the right resources at their hands to ensure perpetrators are brought to justice. The systemic underfunding and under- resourcing on social issues that in particular impact women and minorities is disgraceful and needs to change.

Modernising the criminal justice system, is a genuine necessity. To increase survivor's of rape, on coming forward,. Survivors need to be treated with dignity, by the police, the courts and the public. I back this petition 100%.
