As far as possible, trials in rape cases are supposed to be held without any public in the Courtroom (in camera). Also, as far as possible a woman judge is to be preferred.
The survivor will probably have to appear in court to give evidence. She does not need a lawyer, but can get one to help the government lawyer, with the court’s permission.
Legally, the court is supposed to assume that in certain cases of rape, the survivor did not consent. It will be up to the accused person’s lawyer to prove, if he can, that the survivor actually consented. In cases of rape or sexual harassment, the previous sexual experiences of the survivor cannot be brought up in court to argue whether she consented or not.0
