The Liberal Democrat MP met with three volunteers and discussed how Victim and Witness Support is actively helping Haringey residents – by providing a safe and supportive place for victims and witnesses to feel comfortable, and be given advice and information.
The MP for Hornsey and Wood Green also had a tour of the court, including the court room, witness box and the video link room.
After the visit, Lynne Featherstone MP commented:
“It was a pleasure to meet the volunteers, who provide an invaluable service to victims and witnesses of crime in Haringey.
“Of course – no one want to be in the witness box giving evidence. However, it is at least comforting to know that there is a dedicated support service there who can give advice and information on options like having a screen between victim and defendant, and giving video evidence.”
