Restraining Orders Without Conviction
Posted by rantingkraut on August 21, 2009
Yet another fence post: The telegraph calls these ‘restraining orders for violent partners’, yet the article makes it clear that no evidence, just an accusation of violence is needed:
“Judges will now be able to approve an order following any offence and if they are acquitted but the court feels there remains sufficient evidence to require restraint.” (source)
If the court feels there is evidence! Who needs facts when you have emotions?
