Cop blitz on wife abusers

PUBLISHED March 16, 2005

A tough campaign targeting wife beaters was unveiled yesterday by Britain's most senior cop.

Met Commissioner Sir Ian Blair warned: "There is no hiding place for those who abuse their partners."
Sir Ian said: "Perpetrators will be arrested and charged - whether or not the victim wishes to bring the case to court. We will see a considerable rise in prosecutions."
