Trying to find support to attend a CICA tribunal hearing
Hello Community, I am trying to find support to attend a CICA tribunal hearing in East London on Thursday. I have my partner but I am told that he may have to leave the hearing as he is the only witness to the assault. Police refused to take statements for all others who wanted to give witness statements. Police now saying they have no evidence of any assault (there were two physical and verbal assaults) and they gave key man a Caution but said they would not want to take it to court as "they might not believe you and he is a man of upstanding position in the community and you are just a woman". I have called about 7 or 8 legal and disability groups today to ask for help and each has told me of another to try a different group. Victim support said someone would get back to me in a couple of weeks, even though I have been waiting almost 2 years. We do have to be stronger than other people dont we?
