It appears that significant steps are now being taken to bring about reform. Special measures can of course be put in place under the present system, but even video links are inadequate to prevent the nastiest scenarios where ongoing intimidation and control is the true intent. Justice should not have to be trial by mental ordeal in such circumstances. Yet whilst there will always be extreme situations, the end of legal aid in private law cases for all but the victim has brought about a situation where the perpetrator must either pay privately or represent themselves. These proposals plug a gap, but they do not solve the underlying problem.
