English term or phrase: no-drop policy
The frequent classification of battering as a misdemeanor, even when the conduct is very serious, may suggest to victims that the behavior is being trivialized" and that it is not worth the risks of prosecution for such minor consequences. Long delays, lack of witness protection, and prosecutors seeming indifference can discourage victim cooperation. The process of prosecution may be so difficult for victims, that some experts maintain that a ***no-drop policy *****may deter victims from reporting crimes. By reporting abuse, victims may sense that they have lost control of the legal process . Cahn argues that jurisdictions with no-drop policies must have victim protection programs .

πολιτική απαγόρευσης ανάκλησης της μήνυσης

Ή "πολιτική μη ανάκλησης της μήνυσης", απόδοση που θεωρώ λιγότερο σαφή.

Βλ. στο βιβλίο Understanding Violence Against Women (1996)
Commission on Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education (CBASSE):

"A major issue in prosecution is whether or not a victim should be allowed to drop the charges. [...] Foremost among recommended policies is a ''no-drop" policy, promoted as making it impossible for a defendant to pressure a victim to drop charges, thereby possibly protecting the victim from coercive violence"
