England, Wales to urge crime victims to hand over phones

Police in England and Wales are distributing consent forms urging victims of sexual assault and other crimes to turn over access to mobile phones or risk having their cases dropped. The National Police Chiefs’ Council said that police will only seek access for investigative purposes. Critics have slammed the policy saying it violates victims’ rights and subjects them to a ’digital strip search’.

yes, when the crume can't be verified by other evidence an accuser will need to submit their phone for evidence. If you were raped and want justice this is a small price to pay.

Disgusting police state tactics which is why it fits Britain so well. It’s probably just a ruse so the filth can get back to policing twitter.
