I'd like to continue in the same vein.
When you are a victim, you don't have many rights. The first time you go to court before a judge, it's your first experience and you want it to be the last. No one is interested in going back. It's really a first, and you know nothing. You have no rights but you see that the accused, for his part, has all the rights. Even I was warned that that if I did not stop looking at and intimidating the accused, the judge would make me leave the court and I would no longer have the right to be present at the trial.
How does a victim feel when they are there? I saw a photo of a statue on Facebook with an empty centre. That is the victim. When you lose someone who is dear to you, you have this very large void at the centre of your being; your loved one is no longer there.
I can't explain to you the pain a victim goes through. I understand the other victims when I meet them, I know what they go through, it's visceral. No two victims are the same. Among all of those I met, no one experienced the tragedy in the same way; it's never the same. It's always something that has to be begun anew and explained. It's not the same pain; no one experiences this in the same way. The approach is always different.
Unfortunately, the victims are often poorly informed. They need to be better informed. A lot of importance is given to the accused and not much to the victims. It doesn't take much. We have to give information to the victims, take care of them and protect them.
Earlier I said that the victims of conjugal tragedies were never protected. If they denounce someone, they are the ones who will suffer because the accused will avenge themselves. They have no protection at all.
