Abusers face up to 5 years in jail with new non-fatal strangulation offence

Our thanks to Steve for this – unusually for a piece on domestic abuse, the journalists is a man. Although a majority of domestic abuse victims are men (Partner Abuse State of Knowledge Project, 2013), this article has not one but two images showing men as perpetrators, women as victims. The end of the piece:

The new non-fatal strangulation office also comes at a time when more rape victims [CAFP: ALLEGED rape victims] will be able to apply to courts to pre-record video evidence before their case reaches trials. From Thursday (June 9), special measures schemes for victims [CAFP: ALLEGED victims] of crimes such as rape and modern slavery will be extended to 11 more crown courts across the Midlands and the South West. Victims [CAFP: ALLEGED victims] will be able to pre-record their evidence, as close to the time of the offence as possible, and will be spared the trauma of giving evidence at trial and facing cross-examination. [CAFP: The targets of possibly false allegations will be “spared” the right to cross-examine the women making allegations. Justice for men thrown under a bus so women can be “spared the trauma”.] The scheme has already been successfully introduced in 26 Crown Courts and the Government is committed to rolling it out nationwide by September.
