Meg slams proposed plans for anonymity of rape defendants

Wednesday, June 9, 2010

Sheffield Heeley MP Meg Munn has slammed the government’s proposals to introduce anonymity for rape defendants.

 

At an adjournment debate secured by Don Valley MP Caroline Flint, Meg was among many Yorkshire MPs who spoke out about how these proposed plans could inhibit the prosecution of serial rapists.

 

Meg said:

 

“This proposed move by the coalition government is wrong. Rape is one of the most prevalent violent crimes in the UK and we need to strengthen the ways we catch and convict rapists not weaken them.

 

Young women who may be in a dependent relationship with someone and suffer rape sometimes do not come forward because they may feel it was their fault. Only subsequently, when they hear that the person has done the same thing to someone else do they gain the courage to speak up.

 

We must fight hard against this proposal.”
