MP calls for victims of Revenge Porn to be given anonymity

Maria Miller MP has called on Minister of State for Victims, Youth and Family Justice to give victims of revenge pornography anonymity to help improve the reporting and conviction rates for this appalling crime.

Maria Miller MP delighted to launch "Reclaim the Internet" campaign.

This campaign is an opportunity to gather people’s views on what a wholesale review of the law might include. National Police lead Chief Constable Stephen Kavanagh is clear the status quo in law doesn't serve victims - that there has been an explosion of online crime and that much of the legislation predates the Internet age. There needs to be better training for the Police particularly around evidence gathering; and we need to consider whether anonymity for victims could be appropriate too.
