Everybody may become a victim of crime!
Falling victim to a crime is most certainly an unpleasant and at times highly upsetting experience for anybody. Physical, psychological, economic and social consequences of the crime aside, it is quite normal for anybody involved in court proceedings to experience doubts, anxiety or worry.

If you yourself have become the victim of a crime or know someone who has, this website may offer you help and assistance.

Here you can find information on your rights, on how criminal proceedings work and where to find help and support.

We hope that you will find this website helpful.

We have tried our best to explain everything you need to know in simple and clear terms, while still providing you with as complete and comprehensive information as possible.
