SCMP : Eight in 10 victims of sexual violence know their attackers, and many are afraid to report incidents to police, Hong Kong study shows

The study by RainLily, released on Wednesday, looked at 3,501 sexual violence cases the group worked on between 2000 and last year. The study found 82 per cent of the cases involved people the victims knew, with schoolmates and friends, current or former intimate partners, workmates and family members the most frequent offenders. Some 1,000 cases, or 31 per cent, involved continuous sexual violence, with 34 cases lasting a decade or longer.
