SWA calls upon Scottish Government to review court resource

Solicitor General Lesley Thomson spoke today (8 May 2014) at the COPFS domestic abuse conference in Glasgow of the need for modernisation of the laws around domestic abuse. She delivered a landmark announcement calling for bespoke legislation for domestic abuse. We believe it is time to address this and look forward to working with the COPFS and other partners in the Scottish criminal justice system to continue to improve the response to domestic abuse. Acknowledgement of the complexity of domestic abuse within a legal context is a positive move which will benefit women.
