Are the Police investigating do you know at this stage?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes. I believe so.
Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
Ok. It really depends. The first you may know about the substance is if they come and speak to you. Until that happens you dont have a right to know, because they may investigate, consider there are no founded allegations and take no further action.
But at this stage you are not a suspect as you have not been spoken to. If you become a suspect you will have a right to know what it is alleged that you have done.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
