Child sex abuse victims treated 'overcautiously'
Draft guidelines are expected to be published in May ahead of a three-month public consultation.
Child sex abuse investigations put too much focus on the victims' credibility and not enough on the suspects, says the director of public prosecutions as he announces a shake-up of guidelines.
Director of Public Prosecutions Keir Starmer told the BBC there was an "overcautious" approach to victims.
In a speech delivered earlier, Mr Starmer said: "We cannot afford another Savile moment".

Hundreds of cases where there was no prosecution could be re-examined?
This might be so, but, as we learned from the coroner, Dr Fiona Wilcox, in the MI6-hacker Gareth Williams pink-bag-in-bath inquest, "The cause of his death was unnatural and likely to have been criminally mediated. I am therefore satisfied that on the balance of probabilities Gareth was killed unlawfully." Head on over to the DAILY MAIL for their Gareth Williams Inquest page.
All through the above MI6 case there were National Security restrictions implemented. Just think, what if most of the child sex cases in UK, Europe and America are indeed to do with National Security as in 'child sex abuse material used as leverage to corrupt and control those in power'? It's been done before in many countries? And surely it won't have been an isolated case. So, some kid reports that he's regularly child-sex-abused at some location like Kincora Boys Home in Ireland, NOTHING WILL EVER BE DONE because of National Security. And what about Holly Greig, is she a National Security case, too?
Iraq WMD investigator Dr David Kelly has elements of National Security to it. As did the Jean Charles de Menezes case, and others. We've all seen the glaring (or maybe just clumsy) cover-ups of the Warren Commission and the 9/11 Commission and the downplaying of other Covert Acts for PROFIT (yes, Follow The Money, always) like Operation Gladio.
FIVE DAYS LATER UPDATE: they're still rattling on about it all over nightly news here in UK, "The missed opportunities by various nationwide police forces," during the thirty years of the Jimmy Savile sex abuse case but it's still not the real issue. Get ex-Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone, on mainstream media tonight and have him reiterate his claim that MI5 FILMED THE SEXUAL ABUSE OF CHILDREN at the Kincora Boys Homes in Ireland in order to blackmail some politicians. Get him to explain (to the gormless consumer) how those 'various nationwide police forces' would have never been able to flag this issue. It would have been a 'cloaked' issue.
Can you then imagine such an admission will ever be made public knowledge?
If Ken Livingstone was correct in his assertion about the involvement of MI5 in Ireland, then SEX ABUSE OF CHILDREN may have always been or will always be classified under National Security regulations. And you will never get any other response from them, other than apathy. Nothing will bring to light the 'real role' of what's done in the name of PROFIT on this planet. It's just too 'delicate' for mainstream consumption, sorry. Smoke & mirrors.
