I started speaking too quickly. I wanted first to thank you for your work. I lost my sister Lisa when I was 27. She was seven years younger than me. Even 30 years later science can't tell us why Lisa died. I had no one to be angry at, and I couldn't take legal action. I can't imagine the burden victims' families carry. And so I commend you for your work. I am also speaking to you, Mr. Serre, and I admire everything you have done for the community.
We have a very delicate question that concerns preliminary inquiries. During our study on human trafficking, we heard that most often, a person who left the human trafficking network and wanted to take legal action had to testify at preliminary inquiries, not just once, but two, three or even four times, and that this always had the effect of victimizing that person or the witnesses.
Does that compare to your experience and to that of the victims your work with?
