Title
Critical approach to criminal protection of victim women of rape in Iran law
Author
Abstract
The crisis of sexual offences particularly rape against women has been debatable for police, judicial, governmental, and nongovernmental organizations. Rape in both developed and developing countries especially in Iran includes a noticeable number of unreported violence. Based on public opinion women themselves are the main causes of this crime. Even in most cases victims are punished. Despite the large amount of the victimization, not adequate arrangements have been adopted by policy makers, to support these victims. Moreover, a humiliating and hesitantly treatment to these victims and not paying attention to their statements in criminal justice system caused them to be at the risk of secondary victimization.
