unstar this property answer text <p>In criminal courts, victims of crime that have been called as a witness are entitled to enter a court through a different entrance from the suspect and to sit in a separate waiting area. Other witnesses may also seek special measures to use a separate entrance and waiting area. In family courts, vulnerable parties and witnesses may also request the use of a separate entrance and waiting area. Where dedicated separate entrances or waiting areas are not available, court staff will make alternative arrangements wherever possible.</p><p> </p><p>As detailed in the Victims Strategy, improving the court environment for victims is a key commitment.</p><p> </p> more like this
