Mr Justice Hayden, a High Court judge, has said he will refuse to allow alleged domestic abusers to cross examine their victims in any future hearings he oversees.
The Judge said he found it ‘extremely disturbing’ that a father appearing in person was able to question his former partner and mother to their 11-year- old son. The father was said to have threatened to kill his wife and was prone to violence.
The victim was allowed to be cross examined by video link and was also granted permission to sit with her back to the video screen.
