1. Allegations included brutal rape, physical and mental abuse. Police spent more than 3 months investigating her claims. As mentioned above, case against me did get dropped a few weeks after my arrest. My EX-partner contacted me only after case was dropped. Video footage does show her clearly and she does say that these allegations were made up by two of her relatives working with the third (the solicitor) and pressured her into making these allegations to the Police; in order to achieve an 'objective'. My relationship with her has ended. I waited up to now to act because she had a restraining order against me and I feared that she will misuse the order if I tried to end the relationship.
2. The SAME solicitor DID say what I have described above. He advises to make false claims of rape and mental torture (domestic abuse) in order to achieve the same 'objective'.
My life has been shattered by the whole experience.
I am asking you to please advise, accepting the above to be true (which IT IS), based on your experience/expertise.
I had heard stories that generally a video recording is not accepted by Police as evidence as recordings can be manipulated using technology nowadays. I have genuine recording which has not been tempered with in any way. So from what you are saying Police will accept my evidence of video recordings.
On the video my ex-partner says that her two relatives told her to make these false allegations. They were part of the same conspiracy. So would Police not make them accountable for their actions as they perverted the course of justice too?
Similarly, Solicitor was part of the same conspiracy. On the video, my ex says that he advised her and the other relatives to make these allegations in order to achieve the 'objective'. In my recording of the solicitor, he advises my friend to make the same false allegations in order to achieve the same 'objective'. So again, would Police not make the solicitor accountable for his actions as he perverted the course of justice also?
Sorry, I am being vague about the 'objective'. If I mention the 'objective' then this whole story would make more sense. I do not want to do this as if my ex-partner and/or her relatives read this then they would know this is about them. Is it possible for me to message you what the 'objective' was privately so it is not available for everyone to read?
Does it matter if the language being spoken in the videos is not English?
Also, I have serious misgivings about the Police officer who was in charge of the investigation. I believe that Police officer formed a close relationship (friendship/sympathy) with my ex-partner; Police officer refused to believe me when I repeatedly told them that it was all a set up. I have evidence to support this.
My objective is for the Police to investigate this matter thoroughly and to make my ex-partner and others involved in the criminal conspiracy accountable for their actions (perverting the course of justice); AND the Police officer to be investigated for their actions too (at the very least to ensure that the same officer in charge of original investigation is kept away).
Should I go to a firm specialising in taking action against Police?
So how do I make Police take action against my ex-partner?
Also, how do I ensure the same Police Officer is not involved in investigating her, because I know that they were biased?
What about making an arrest? Surely, they have a duty to investigate and arrest a criminal. This was a criminal conspiracy against me, executed by my ex- partner, planned and supported by her relatives and a corrupt solicitor..
Also, I really do not understand "Prosecutions for perverting do deter genuine reporting and false allegers from admitting their lie". This does not make sense. Is it not in public interest to prosecute to deter people from committing this crime again, to make false allegation? Also, what about pain I have had to go through.
