CRIMES OF VIOLENCE AND VIOLENT OFFENCES
Crimes of violence as the title suggests involves the use or at least threat of violence from the offender on the victim. This offence covers a wide range of other offences and will be broken down for ease of understanding. In some cases, the violent act is a means to an end; such as where burglary or armed robbery is the primary crime but violence was used and/or threatened to achieve the primary objective. In other cases, the violent act itself is the main objective and this covers crimes like murder, Grievous Bodily Harm (GBH), Actual Bodily Harm (ABH), torture, serious assault and a variety of other offences which will be discussed below.
Every year, thousands of allegations of torture, rape, one form of assault and molestation or the other, domestic violence and other forms of crimes of violence are reported to the Police. Thousands more are never reported. Unfortunately, some of the reported cases are sometimes fabricated stories maliciously intended to disrupt the accused person’s life.
