This week a study emerged from Glasgow Caledonian University looking into the treatment of victims of rape in the aftermath of attacks.
According to the report, too many victims have to wait over 24 hours to be examined, with the examinations predominantly carried out by male specialists. Police officers have described the treatment of some victims as “despicable” and “horrendous.”
I raised the issue during First Minister’s Questions today. You can watch my question and the First Minister’s response in the video below.
