The attached case study compellingly sums up why we need to give more thought to the forensic cold-storage of victims testimony in those many cases where they don’t want any police involvement. Not just to better enable and protect them should they change their mind and become exposed to the adversarial active defence tactics of QCs but to protect other members of the public from becoming victims and having to ‘survive’.

The case study speaks for itself, has application in many other ways (think of all those impacted by recent terrorist atrocities – never more poignant than on the anniversary of the Manchester bombing), and if you’d like to know more please just contact the team at
