After many years of Domestic Violence & sexual assaults, I knew I had to leave but was afraid. I made reports to the police about being threatened with a taser & knives yet not a thing was done about it. When I finally tried leaving early last year (we didn't live together), my home was broken into the very next day & my dog was stolen. The police were called, however, and they refused to attend despite telling them I knew who had taken the dog & had text msgs to show evidence, etc. Thankfully, my dog was found a week later & the person who took her got away with it due to the police refusing to even look into the matter. He would have been found guilty if they did! I finally left mid last year after being physically assaulted again. I went to the police & made a statement & was told an IVO will be taken out against him immediately (by the police) as well as the assault & aggravated assault charges. I was also referred to CASA re: many sexual assaults over the time with my ex & made a 12+ page statement over the course of a few weeks. It then took police 4 weeks to initiate the IVO & another 4 weeks before he was even interviewed over the assault (which of course he denied). I was then told by police he would not be charged as there wasn't enough evidence despite all the bruising. It was only then that the officer asked me if there were any witnesses to the assault. I was stunned by the question & told police I wasn't exactly looking for an audience at the time & didn't go back to ask neighbours if they saw or not - I actually thought that was the job of police? Again my ex got away with it. My ex was only interviewed over the sexual assaults in late Dec (4+ months after making a statement). Again, he denied the assaults & I have since been told charges will most likely not go ahead as there wasn't enough evidence despite the many crude & threatening text messages as well as my personal diary outlining what had happened on almost a daily basis over a 4-year period. Many of text messages I have received show clearly (what I have been advised by casa & others) as being sexual assault even tho the actual physical assaults happened behind closed doors. As there were no witnesses to the actual sexual assaults (again, in private behind closed doors). It would appear that they didn't believe me & as such the police haven't bothered to follow up with those I told about the assaults at the time or taken any of the text evidence into account either. I am stunned by the lack of police support but more so for the lack of investigation into the evidence I have in written from the abuser. Is there any legal course of action I can take under Criminal Law to have these matters looked into the way they should have been by the police? My case of Domestic Violence has not at all been taken seriously by the police & I am now in fear of my life knowing he has gotten away with everything. It's almost saying to him that he can do whatever he wants & he'll get away with it... Please help! I want to fight this, not just for myself, but for other abused women who are just being fobbed off by the police & no action being taken despite evidence proving the Domestic Violence. I would appreciate any assistance. I need someone on my side who takes Domestic Violence seriously, will investigate these matters properly & bring the abuser to account for his actions before he does this again to someone else or worse!
