VS responds to Liz Truss, Justice Secretary to order review to ban abusers tormenting victims in family courts

5 January 2017

Lucy Hastings, Director of independent charity Victim Support says:

“Survivors of domestic abuse are too often subject to direct cross-examination by their abuser in the family courts, causing them significant distress.

“We welcome the Government’s emergency review and call for swift action to stop the family court system being used by perpetrators as a way to continue abuse and inflict further harm.”
