Review handling of rape cases and seek to increase prosecutions
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.
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.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
