My son was arrested and charged with assault in Jordan, he

Customer Question

My son was arrested and charged with assault in Jordan, he was told that if he pays $15000 to the claimant,he will be released without charge. This was definitly a set up for money and the Jordanian confirmed it. (at his last hearing my son asked what would happen if the money was not paid he was told he would have ro remain in Jordan until the money was paid)The money was paid by his company (but has lost his job) and his passport was returned and his belongings and was shown the door. When he applies for a job and it was necessary for CRB check, would this inciden show up?

Right, if you go back to original question, is there an agreement between Jordanian and UK authorities when UK nationals are arrested and charge which subsequently show up on a crb check?
