Petition to ask the Prime Minister to Support victims of rape and sexual violence by ensuring more rapists are convicted. The petition reads:

‘We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister 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.
