Hi.
Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.
Because they do not need to prove guilt to recall. People are quite commonly recalled on mere allegations. The recall provisions are not subject to the presumption of innocence.
I imagine they just recalled because there was an allegation.
If this is standard recall then it will be considered again in 28 days.
Can I clarify anything for you?
