Petition Action

Review handling of rape cases and seek to increase prosecutions

Petition Details

The Government should review how cases of reported rape are handled by the police, Crown Prosecution Service and courts to establish why so few cases make it court, with a view to identifying how to increase the number of cases that are prosecuted.

Additional Information

The number of rape cases making it to court is at an all-time low. Survivors are being brave to report these crimes but it appears they are not being listened to.

Help change the stigma around rape cases and help bring justice for all its victims.
