Even More New UK Rape Laws

Submitted by IHF: A new British law will ban defendants in rape and sex crimes from cross-examining their accusers in court. This will only apply when the accused is defending himself, and will force him to use a lawyer (court appointed or chosen by him) to do the cross-examination. The UK Independent has the story here. It seems every day that we move further away from fairness toward men in court systems around the world.
