Anne Longfield comments on Victim Commissioner’s review into treatment of young crime victims by criminal justice agencies

Commenting on the Victim Commissioner’s review into the treatment of children and young victims of crime by criminal justice agencies, Anne Longfield, Children’s Commissioner for England said:

“It is critically important that children who have been victims of crime are not victimised again by the criminal justice system. When children tell authorities that they have been a victim of a violent or sexual crime, it is vital that they are listened to and that their allegations are taken seriously and thoroughly investigated.”
