WHAT YOU CAN DO

  1. If the abuse occurred recently, you need to go to a hospital, possibly to the obstetrics and gynaecology department, to be checked or to have the victim of abuse checked. Ask for all lesions – bruises, scratches, signs of violence – to be described in detail in the medical report.
  2. If the abused person is a child, pay close attention to any inexplicable wounds or lesions, along with any change in behaviour or low self – esteem.

WHAT YOU SHOULD AVOID

  1. Avoid carrying out any investigations on your own and always turn to sector professionals. Especially when dealing with minors, it is necessary to rely only on those who have experience in the field in order not to further compromise precarious balances.
  2.  Avoid direct confrontation with the attacker. This could be dangerous and compromising for the purpose of the investigation
