Mehra Commission

Wednesday 16 January 2013, 2:00pm

Motion detail

This Assembly notes the tragic and horrific gang-rape of a young student in Delhi on the 16th of December, which has outraged the Indian Nation and drawn international attention to the global problem of violence against women.

This Assembly notes the strength of feeling of the people of London and supports calls for better policing, victim support, and prosecution of violence against women in India and around the world.

This Assembly therefore calls on the Mayor's Office for Policing and Crime and the Metropolitan Police Service to offer support to the Mehra Commission in India in its investigation into policing, victim support, and prosecution of sexual assault.
