star this property answer text <p>The law is clear that what is illegal off-line is also illegal on-line and we have robust legislation in place to deal with internet trolls, cyber stalking <br>and harassment. The government brought in new stalking laws in November 2012 which sends a clear message that those responsible for stalking should be brought to justice. This will also help stop people living in fear and prevent escalation to more serious violence. From April 2013 to March 2014, 743 prosecutions were commenced under the new stalking legislation. This is a significant increase from the 67 prosecutions that were commenced from November 2012 to March 2013 and shows that the legislation is taking effect.<br><br>The government continues to work in collaboration with the College of Policing, the National Policing Lead on Stalking, and the Crown Prosecution Service, amongst others, to further raise awareness of the legislation and promote training to ensure these offences are tackled effectively. In July 2013 the Crown Prosecution Service published guidelines for prosecutors on the approach they should take in cases involving communications sent via social media. The College of Policing also wrote to all Chief Officers in July 2013 with advice on tackling online abuse.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

Work has started on installing the security fences we provided and should be completed over the coming weeks. This will build on the sustained UK support and investment in improving physical security and upgrading technology at Calais. <br><br>We are also working to deliver longer term solutions. This includes improving the infrastructure and flow of traffic at Calais in order to reduce the risk of queuing vehicles on the approach roads which are targeted by migrants.<br><br>But we recognise that the problem does not begin in Calais. That is why we are enhancing joint work with France and other European partners to clamp down on the organised crime groups behind people smuggling.

Economic sanctions on Russia are having an impact. Capital has flown out of Russia, banks are short of finance, and the Russian stock market and Rouble have fallen significantly. Russia’s behaviour has seen it isolated by the international community, including at the UN and by the G8.</p> more like this

star this property answer text We are deeply disturbed by recent reporting from the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights of allegations of incidents of sexual and gender-based violence in eastern Ukraine. This includes reports of rape or detention of women at check-points and incidents of the abduction of women, by armed groups, whose whereabouts remain unknown. The Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom has also received reports of a rise in domestic violence and human trafficking across Ukraine. The British Government has been in dialogue with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) around protection concerns, including sexual violence, at collective centres for the displaced and have confirmed that the UK’s £700,000 contribution to the UNHCR to repair housing for the displaced is being complemented by the work of UNHCR protection officers. We have consistently raised our concerns about these issues with partners and we will continue to call on all sides to ensure respect for international law.

star this property answer text <p>The National Offender Management Service (NOMS) takes the issue of all contraband in prisons extremely seriously and deploys a comprehensive range of robust searching and security measures to detect items of contraband both at the point of entry to the prison and concealed within the prison. These include drug detection dogs, procedures to tackle visitors and others who seek to smuggle drugs and phones into prisons, and mobile phone detection technology. NOMS has rolled out a networked IT intelligence system and provided prisons with short range portable mobile phone blockers which will help prisons prevent prisoners using mobile phones, which are often associated with drug supply.</p><p> </p><p>The success of NOMS drug strategy is illustrated by the reduction of drug misuse - as measured by the random mandatory drug testing programme - which has declined by 17.0 percentage points over the past 17 years. Positive rates were 24.4% in 1996/7 and 7.4% in 2013/14, despite the fact that prisoners are being tested for a greater range of drugs.</p><p> </p><p>The government recently introduced an amendment to the Criminal Justice and Courts Bill to expand prisons' powers to test prisoners for non-controlled drugs. If agreed and enacted, this would allow prison staff to conduct mandatory drug tests on prisoners for non-controlled drugs, such as new psychoactive substances and medicines, if the required tests were available.</p>

The theft of items from graves is a heartless and callous crime which can have a devastating impact on bereaved relatives and friends. If the offenders responsible are detected they can expect to feel the full force of the law.</p><p> </p><p>The Ministry of Justice Court Proceedings Database holds information on defendants proceeded against, found guilty and sentenced for criminal offences in England and Wales. However, not all offences are individually reported within the centrally held data. Offences of grave robbery are reported as part of a wider group of offences and cannot be separately identified from other offences under the Theft Act. This detailed information is not reported to Justice Statistics Analytical Services due to its size and complexity and as such, it can only be obtained at disproportionate cost.</p> more like this
