The People’s Union for Civil Liberties addresses the fact that only law and punishment will not lead to an improved situation with regard to women’s safety. Hereby, they especially the reject the imposition of the death penalty and chemical castration. Moreover, structural issues need to be discussed and the overall definition of sexual assault needs to be revisited and more women should be included in the whole process. Furthermore, they warn with regard of fast track trials as they include the risk of failure. Here, they give explicit recommendation for standard procedures of investigation, medical treatment and the trial.
