Who decides who gets prosecuted? What if they don't believe my story? How much do they have to tell me about the ongoing investigation?

Expert:  Clare replied 3 years ago.
Hi
The actual decision is made by the Public Prosecution Service - you can read about their role here
http://www.ppsni.gov.uk/SiteDocuments/PPS%20Press%20Office/The%20Role%20of%20the%20Public%20Prosecution%20Service%20(revised%202010).pdf
You will not be given details of the ongoing investigation - but will be given an explanation if they decide not to prosecute
I hope that this is of assistance
Clare
