The Trial: When the survivors go to court they sometimes feel that they are the ones on trial. That is because the prosecutor has to prove to the magistrate beyond all reasonable doubt their account of what happened is the truth and very often there were no witnesses and the defence attorney’s only option is to try to make out that they are lying and the rapist’s version of events is the truth. © Hazel Thompson
