That's the worst part of mediation.A drawback so to speak.
AC rooms and free coffee of mediation centres cannot heal a victim's wounds, who's already been broken because of attrocities.
Since there's no judge ka danda in mediation centres,offenders like husbands and their parents who have already tortured a woman enuf say wot ever lies they want abt the victim,as nobody will expose the same outside mediation centre.
they hide their real incomes to avoid giving rightful alimony/maintenance and cook up stories abt the victim as well,to gain mediator's sympathy.
And you have to "COMPROMISE" with such liars and pretenders in mediation centres.
Because,if,due to any personal reasons,you cant fight the case to ask for your rights and to punish such people, such offenders go scot free after settlements,without learning lessons.
first compromise with cruel husband and inlaws,to maintain harmony
later compromise in mediation centres,again for harmony.
And let the offenders have their way,as always!
