There was recently an incident at a party and i was told whilst very drunk i had to make a statement, so I did even though i stated i didnt want to be involved or my name mentioned as it could put my family at risk. The next day when sober I realised I didnt have to make the statement in the first place so withdrew it, again stating i didnt want part of the situation and i didnt really see anything or remember much because of how drunk I was. I also signed something to say i wished to stay anonymous and was not prepared to go to court as nobody wanted to press charges. The very same day after being promised by the CID and the police, they arrested somebody and straight away told them my name and said I had given a statement. Is this legal when I had stated more than once i didnt want my name involved.
no i was just there and in fact didnt even see it happen i was back inside the place it happened by the time it happened
I cant really remember as I was drunk, but I saw the argument, but my son pushed me back inside then next thing i knew two people came in covered in blood. I was angry at the person as it was my sons 18th and I had worked hard for it, and was told he had glassed people but it turns put this may not have even been the case and now my name is ***** ***** into something i specifically asked not to be, and then they have given the guy in question my name when i told them it could put my family in danger as his family are dangerous
that may have sounded like my son had glassed people, which isnt what i was saying i meant my son pushed me back in then apparantly the guy in question glassed 2 people
can I take legal action against them for giving my name when I specifically asked them not to, also if i was drunk surely my statement cant even be valid
and I signed something to say my original statement was no longer correct yesterday
Well the lady that took my statement yesterday is on holiday until friday and she promised me yesterday she wouldnt mention me and i signed something saying i wished to stay anonymous and wasnt willing to give evidence in court, yet she still told him my name
can i take legal action against her?
She is C.I.D?
yeh i dont want any compo or anything i just want to make a stand to stop them doing anything like that again in the future
well when she comes to see me friday i will tell her how angry I am but theres not really much I can do until then is there?
well i wll never trust the police again thats for sure
they are supposed to protect people not put them in danger
so do you think i should persue making a complaint?
thank you - I just need to know if I was right to feel that I have been used as a scapegoat, thank you very much for your help
