I have no idea what my laptop has to do with a shooting.
I was arrested on 2 counts of attempted murder, after spending 28 hours in a cell, I was bailed, for 1 count of attempted murder.
Just because I match the description 'fat, white, pointy nose'.
My bail return date is next week, my conditions included everyday sign-on at police station between 13-14.
They even seized passports and some other paperwork.
No 101 was given, my solicitor has been calling and emailing them twice a day from the 13th of august. The OIC made up bullshit until the day I went to court to get my bail conditions changed.
They are delaying things, my sales have gone down by fifty percent....
3 witnesses tried to ID me on a video parade and couldn't.
I don't know what trident is trying to do. Just pure harassment I think.
Also if I can, is there a timeframe where they have to return it?
I am aware of that act, but I'm worried that if I ask for the return of the property, they might investigate 'why I need it back' which in result will mean that they would make a copy of my hard drives, keep the original and give me a copy back which defeats the purpose as I won't be able to do anything with the copy drive.
The OIC said we could get it back, but now he doesn't answer the phone.
Solicitor talked with someone higher ranking, and he said that it's being kept because the police have to seize all electronics and check them for child porn... That it has nothing to do with their case, and once they complete their checks they can give it back...
It's been a month. I don't know what to do.
They haven't started examining it, don't think so.
And no they are not going to find anything
They told my solicitor that all seized laptops are checked for child porn
They simply do what the British police does best, harassment and cause you distress.
What would you say, should I do it before my bail return date? Or after (when they rebail me)
