The question of evidence
In addition, Nicole Belloubet spoke of an experience in the hospitals “, which involves collecting evidence of sexual violence without the complainant that the complaint has been filed “. “Then, the victim can decide if it is a complaint. “”My concern is that the victims go and complaint and that we can have the maximum amount of evidence,” the minister said.

It would include, for example, ” not [to] put the victim systematically in the face of her assailant several times during the investigation.”
