Alleged sexual offenders will be spared the opportunity of facing their accusers in the courtroom, says Brandon Lewis, Justice Secretary

Our thanks to Jim Johnson for this. Of course the title above is not the actual headline in the Telegraph, which reads, “Rape victims will all be spared trauma of courtroom, says Justice Secretary”. Jim writes:

It’s official – the Department for Justice has abandoned the Rule of Law.  Under the new Justice Secretary Brandon Lewis, many innocent men will go to prison for false accusations of rape and other alleged sexual offenses.  He outlines it well in his letter to the Telegraph today:

Justice Secretary Brandon Lewis’s announcement in summary:

The right to a fair trial and the right to face your accuser has been abandonded. “Brandon Lewis has announced that “all rape victims across England and Wales now able to apply to pre-record their evidence in the Crown Court. It will spare many the agony of testifying in the glare of a live trial.”  This removes an accused person’s right to face their accuser and to cross examine them, a fundamental right of due process enshrined in English Common Law, Roman Law, US Constitutional Law. Roman law can be found in the Acts of the Apostles 25:16. “I told them that it is not the Roman custom to hand over anyone before they have faced their accusers and have had an opportunity to defend themselves against the charges.” US Law is explained by District Judge F Dennis Saylor, “Our constitution [the Sixth Amendment “Confrontation Clause”] provides for a right of confrontation, a public proceeding in which you confront your accuser, the right of cross-examination.”

Guilty until proven innocent is the new treatment.  Never mind that Colln Williams discovered that approximately 77% of rape allegations reported the the police are false. Brandon Lewis always refers to accusers as “victims” and never “complainants,” revealing that men will be treated as guilty until proven innocent.

Operation Soteria – Home Office Witch Hunt against accused men.  Brandon Lewis further announces “With the Home Office’s expansion of Operation Soteria, we are making sure that rape investigations focus overwhelmingly on the suspect, so victims don’t feel as though they are the ones under the police spotlight.”  Men can forget about a fair investigation by the police forces, all of whom report to the Home Office.

£460m of new government funding over 3 years to support “witnesses and victims.”  This is quite a financial incentive to make a false accusation – is this money being paid as compensation to women to make the allegations and keep sticking with their untruthful, exaggerated or twisted stories? 

Rape definition is not being expanded to include female rapists.  This is in spite of many men being coerced or too drunk to consent to sex with women, which is the standard applied to men when determining life-destroying rape allegations.

If this is how men are to be tried in English Courts, then Judges and Juries need to consider how the Ministry of Justice has removed due process against the accused men when they make their decisions. Given the removal of due process for men by the Ministry of Justice and Home Office witch hunt, there is little chance that these trials can now meet the test of proving the accused of being guilty “beyond a reasonable doubt.”  Judges/Juries should not convict if the CPS uses pre-recorded videos.

    There is another more sinister reason for this tactic – for the Crown Prosecution Service to be able to proceed with a prosecution against the wishes of the female accusers. The CPS do it all the time and it is part of CPS strategy – the CPS euphemism is “evidence-led prosecutions.” 40% of accusers drop their support for CPS prosecutions, which drives the CPS man-hating feminists mad. This tactic of the accuser no longer having to show up in court on the day of the trial for cross examination will allow the CPS to override the wishes of the female accuser who just wants the whole thing dropped.

    “In my book, The Empathy Gap, section 19.6, I discuss false allegations of rape and the difficulty of obtaining a secure estimate of the rate of false allegations due to the extremely wide spread of reported data. However, I also show in that section, using only data from National Statistics, that 77% of allegations of rape made to the police appear to be false.”
