Victims’ Commissioner launches new research focusing on the experience of rape victims in the criminal justice system.
The Victims’ Commissioner for England and Wales Dame Vera Baird QC is asking victims of rape to share their experiences of the criminal justice system.
On 12th June the Commissioner launched her research by publishing a request for information which takes the form of a questionnaire.
Dame Vera is asking anyone who has been the victim of rape – and who feels able to – to tell her about their personal experience of the criminal justice system. It does not matter how far the offence progressed in the system, the VC wants to know about what happens at every stage.
