A report was released last year which looked at almost 4000 cases of rape and examined the bottlenecks, statistics relating to the nature of the complaint and the age of the complainant amongst many other thins – a very interesting read – it shows how many cases fall through the cracks along the road to convictions. It is available to download from our resources section.
