Low Conviction Rate – Message from Tulir

“Lies, damned lies, and then there are statistics” – Mark Twain. Firstly sexual violence world wide is the most under reported crime – there is a huge gap between disclosure and reporting ; Therefore the higher numbers is just an indication of a more proactive and sensitized police force; Unfortunately the conviction rate is pathetically low which indicates the low priority sexual violence investigation is given and the long drawn out intimidating trial processes.
