This is a report on the main findings of a review which looked into ways to reduce the distress that some victims suffer during cross-examination in trials of sexual violence cases, particularly where there are multiple defendants and barristers. All these findings will be key initiatives in the next phase of the government’s criminal justice reforms and continuing work on the response to sexual violence. It also contains eight recommendations of the review, relating to four areas identified as susceptible to reform.
