A piece in the Telegraph, predictably written by a female journalist. It starts with the following, I’ve inserted ‘ALLEGED’ where appropriate:
Liz Truss’s plan to allow ALLEGED rape victims to pre-record their evidence before a trial has been delayed because the technology doesn’t work properly.
The Ministry of Justice had planned to begin a pilot allowing ALLEGED victims of rape be cross-examined ahead of a trial on tape to save them the trauma of coming to court as part of a £1bn scheme to modernise the court system.
But the pilot, which was due to be introduced in three crown courts in September, has been delayed after problems arose with the quality of the videos.
The true purpose of the measure cannot be in doubt. It’s to increase the proportion of alleged rapists who are convicted, by not allowing juries to see alleged rape victims in the courtroom. It’s a feminist project to deliver more miscarriages of justice, to put more innocent men behind bars. It’s an open invitation to vindictive women to make more false rape allegations, to ruin more men’s lives, without even the need to attend a court, or be in the same courtroom as the man they’ve falsely accused of raping them.
