Description:
Rape Crisis Network Ireland (RCNI) welcomes the opportunity to make submissions on the Law Reform Commission Consultation Paper 63-2011, “Sexual Offences and Capacity to Consent”, as we are concerned to ensure that our clients with intellectual disabilities are given every possible support to pursue a case through the criminal courts if that is their wish. Our experience is that current law and procedure in this area do not work for our intellectually disabled clients to offer them the same opportunities to pursue a case as other clients without any such disability, so we are delighted to see this detailed and thoughtful Consultation Paper, and also to contribute our own reflections on it.
