Please take five minutes to sign a petition to PM Tony Blair, asking him to support victims of rape and sexual violence by ensuring more rapists are convicted.
We request HM government to:
- Provide central government funding for rape crisis centres to support victims.
- Create specially trained CPS and police teams to prosecute sexual offences.
- End unnecessary cross examination of rape victims and allow all juries to hear evidence of previous convictions of defendants and of previous similar allegations against defendants.
