‘Silence in the Court’ documents a case of a judge sexually abusing the wives of two accused with the support of attorney’s appearing for the suspects. According to the documentary one of the victims approaches Ivan, then the Editor of ‘Ravaya’ and it is his intervention and investigations that results in bringing into the public domain what would have otherwise been yet another case of a vulnerable woman being abused being swept under the carpet.
