A number of measures which would protect vulnerable witnesses are being discussed

Rape victims should have their evidence pre-recorded to save them trauma in the court room.

A new report out today claims to have come up with ways to protect vulnerable witnesses.

Even with these new measures in place, the report states that a fair trial for defendants would still be offered.

The report was put together by a number of groups including the Rape Crisis Network of Ireland.

They want to pilot a range of changes which also includes speeding up the length of time between making a complaint and a case going to court.
