The Tories Are Failing Victims Of Crime

Campaigners such as Voice4Victims have catalogued appalling abuses, where the victims sometime feel as if the impact on them of the judicial process or police investigation was worse than the crime itself. Victims are being cross-examined by their tormentors, or not informed of hearings in a timely way, their names and addresses disclosed, personal effects of loved ones are withheld even when they are used as evidence, and the feeling that they are being treated as the criminal is widespread.
