A little behind on a number of projects with chapters due on witness in court, sexual assault, sexual assault in detention and healthcare of detainees. Also two complex child abuse case overviews. Hope to tackle this week.   Was in Guildford for rape trial last week, followed by a s18 assault (rubber mallet, yes or no) in Southampton. Before this in Bruxelles for Relex Sanctions meeting reviewing export of goods with potential for use in death penalty or torture.  Met detectives from Dyfed-Powys who brought knife exhibits for review.  Travelled to  Weetford Hall in Leeds for Faculty of Forensic & Legal Medicine annual meeting. Presented data from membership survey of usage of Journal of Forensic & Legal Medicine.  Excellent meeting, good speakers, vigorous debate.  Congratulations to new President, Vicky Evans, and new Vice-Presidents, Paul Marks, Peter Green, and George Fernie.
