Domestic abuse victim [complainant] 'doesn't feel safe' to seek help

"A woman who has suffered abuse at the hands of a family member says she does not feel safe to seek help because of the fear that her personal details will be released in court.

The teenager, who has refused to be named for fear of reprisals, said her life has been threatened if she speaks up. She said she is too scared to go to court to seek protection in case her address is revealed during those proceedings, or any subsequent appearances.

Her story emerges as a group of MPs demand that a "dangerous anomaly" in the court system, which Channel 4 News revealed in October is placing victims back in harm's way, be addressed."
