Finding prompts call to end ‘excessive intrusion’ by police into victims’ personal data
Only 3% of rape allegations in London result in convictions, a study has found, prompting the capital’s victims’ commissioner to call for an end to the “excessive intrusion into personal data” demanded when a person makes an allegation.
The London rape review, conducted by the mayor’s office for policing and crime (MOPAC) and the University of West London, looked at 501 allegations of rape made across the city in April 2016.
