I am being interviewed under caution tomorrow from the ecrimes unit. I think I may have left it too late to get a solicitor to attend the interview - or perhaps you can suggest otherwise.
I was one of many part time data entry clerks who worked for a company whose business has been shut down and the CEO currently in jail.
I am under the impression that as a part time data entry clerk, I didn't know what we were doing was illegal and I never made any managerial decisions. This was a part time position to help supplement my full time job to also pay for my house project that had gone off budget.
I entered data, did what I was told and that was pretty much it. This is what I am going to mention tomorrow as this was pretty much all I did for them. Do I still need a solicitor considering this was all I did as a part time employee?
Thanks for the response Jo.
I am of the stance that I had and still to this day no idea that what I was doing was/is illegal. I have no understanding of trading standards legislation or the rules that govern online transactions.
Am I on the correct understanding that the duty solicitor will be free as I am attending the interview voluntarily and I won't be means tested?
