Rights of Women supports call for independent inquiry into approach to domestic abuse in the Family Court
We are part of a group of family and human rights lawyers who have signed to a letter sent to the Ministry of Justice calling on them to carry out a full independent inquiry into protection for survivors of domestic abuse and their children in the Family Courts.
The letter welcomes the Government’s proposal to review the treatment of domestic abuse in the Family Courts but, we feel, does not go far enough. For justice to be done, an independent inquiry is necessary.
Read the letter here.
And an article in the Guardian here.
