Thank you for your reply
The key to this is whether you knew the other person was 'guilty' of an offence rather than knowing of the existence of an arrest warrant
In this particular case, I have no way of knowing of my relative's potential guilt or otherwise as I was not present. So who would decide whether I had the "knowledge" of this guilt? Would this be from a jury decision based on my criminal prosecution for the Criminal Law Act 1967 which you quoted.
And yes in my relative's case, there is considerable doubt about his alleged involvement as there are a lot of suspects and I do not know of any definitive proof of his guilt (CCTV, DNA evidence etc.) so in my mind I have no knowledge of his guilt
If you thought he was innocent, for example because he acted in self defence, then you would not be guilty as an assister.
Again who's decision would this be? The police? The jury in any trial I might have?
Please can you confirm why someone might be found guilty in this case? For example, I have been googling similar cases and came across one very similar to mine
In this case it seems that the relative Mr. Amjad Hussain DID have knowledge of his brother-in-law's guilt. But how can this have been proved beyond a reasonable doubt at the time he bought the plane tickets? It also mentions perverting the course of justice?
Obviously I am keen to help out my relative as much as possible and would be keen to know how to cover myself in the event I am asked questions and potentially charged?
