Hi.
Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.
Who is conducting the interview? The police or social services?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
As far as I am aware they will both be there they are not giving us any information

In that case, you cannot demand to be allowed to attend.
They will want an appropriate adult to attend but they would want somebody unaffected by the investigation. If the boys are happy to have you there they probably would agree to it.
If this is a proper ABE recording though you would not be allowed to be with them while they actually recount the allegation though. They would not want anything to influence the allegation or be open to that suggestion.
Can I clarify anything for you?
