Subject: RE: BS: Irish Rugby players rape case
The whole problem is the acceptance by courts of the defence of consent without proof. In my view, if the defence of the accused is consent then the burden of proof should be reversed. Consent should need to be proven, not its absence proven. I believe that in some countries a more liberal interpretation of consent holds.
