A briefing note in relation to the COPFS’ revised prosecution policy in relation to reluctant complainers in cases of rape and other serious sexual offending is attached. This provides an overview of the policy and how it will be implemented, the background to and reasons for the introduction of the revised policy and our commitment to ongoing work, with criminal justice partners and others, to improve the justice response to violence against women and girls.
