Podcast – Victim Support raise concerns as rape victims are told to hand over their mobile phone to police – 29/04/2019

Campaigners says rape victims are being made to choose between privacy or justice – as police ask them to hand over their mobile phones.

Forces across England and Wales want accusers to allow officers to access data including messages, photos, emails, and social media content.

If they don’t, cases could be dropped.

Big Brother Watch is calling it a “digital strip search” that will prolong the distress for those who’ve been attacked.
