Dear Crown Prosecution Service,

In your report on Violence Against Women and Girls (https://www.cps.gov.uk/publication/viole...) you state that:
"All prosecutors were trained in two new mandatory DA e-learning modules on evidence-led prosecutions and coercive control during 2017–18 and an aide-memoire based on these e-learning modules was shared with the police."

Please provide copies of the content of these e-learning modules on Domestic Abuse, any associated training materials used and the aide-memoire that has been shared with police.

Yours faithfully,

B Maloney

Dear Crown Prosecution Service,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Crown Prosecution Service's handling of my FOI request 'VAWG Report e-learning modules on Domestic Abuse'.

The CPS has previously been quite rightly criticised for including male victims as victims of violence against women and girls, a completely indefensible position. The rates of prosecution for female perpetrators and protection of male victims is completely out of step with the numbers of victims consistently reported by the ONS crime survey of England and Wales.

The CPS is obliged by the public sector equality duty in the Equality Act 2010 to eliminate discrimination against protected characteristics, one of those being sex. Clearly the CPS has failed to gain the public's trust in the way it deals with Domestic Abuse and discrimination and should demonstrate, by publication of the training materials it uses in the identification and prosecution of Domestic Abuse that it is complying with its duties under the Equality Act 2010.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/v...

Yours faithfully,

B Maloney
