Its bad news I am afraid you remain on the Sex Offenders register in the country you are convicted. It makes no difference whether you live there or not.

I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.

The only way of getting off is to have the conviction appealed.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Sadly you can only get off if the sentence for you to go on it, or your conviction is overturned. Sadly there is no other way.

I am sorry. Alex
