Rape Crisis News 14: Special Legal Issue
Rape Crisis News 14: Special Legal Issue

Rape Crisis Scotland has published Issue 14 of Rape Crisis News, which has a particular focus on legal matters, and appears at a pivotal moment for survivors' rights.
The outcome of a judicial review published in the 12th February marked a significant step forward for the right to privacy of complainers in sexual offence cases, while the Evidence and Procedure Review initiated by Lord Carloway and published on 26th February offers some radical and welcome proposals for changes in the way that the justice system engages with children and vulnerable witnesses, including survivors of sexual offences. In an interview in this issue, Lord Carloway outlines some of the background to these potentially transformative proposals.
