Website for victims of domestic violence from property saleMake Text Bigger
When my Property is sold I intend to devote my energies towards helping Battered Wives.
In their lifetime 25% of women will be in a battered relationship and at any one point in time 10% of women are beaten by their partners. The whole approach to dealing with a Domestic Abuse situation is back to front in my view.
If the Police receive a Domestic Abuse report on attending I would wish to see an Exclusion Order of 200m placed on the male so that the wife and children remain in the house, such that the wife is safe and the children’s education is not effected.
This is cheaper on the public purse. There is generally no requirement for the Local Authority to house a single man.
The vulnerable person is the Injured Party, that is the wife. For a Conviction there has to be “Corroborative Evidence” and if the lady has visual injuries. i.e. bodily injuries, particularly to the face, then prima facia there is little doubt who inflicted the injuries are who is the Injured Party. Children under 18 years are also considered vulnerable.
To free up Police Time the Officer/s attending will be empowered to issue the Exclusion Notice. The hearing will be the following day in the Magistrates Court where the exclusion Notice will be either confirmed or dismissed! If not dismissed then a trial date will be confirmed unless the male admits guilt.
In Kent the Police are absolutely excellent when a Domestic Violence Victim is murdered but simply do not have the resources otherwise.
The Proposal is not ideal and only applies to Bodily Injury. It applies to all forms of relationship including same sex partnerships, same civil partnerships and hetro-sexual partnerships. I have provided a collection of photographs showing some horrific injuries to ladies.
For 30 years I banked with Coutts up until age 70 years and I am very pleased to note that the Coutts Foundation is doing its bit for battered wives.
