Can you explain your situation a little more?
Are you asking if I can secure it?
If so, these orders are not available to the public.
it can't be done I'm afraid.
These orders are not available to the public.
Will he not tell you?
Or give permission for his solicitors?
The order would have been served on him,
No, you are right then.
If he won't give you accurate information then this just can't be done.
Also, this couldn't have been a rape 21 years ago as the restraining order didn't exist then.
That can't be right either.
Harassment is subject to limitation unless it is a S4 harassment which is rare.
In fairness, there are historical allegations of rape that are prosecuted but not of harassment.
It doesn't sound particularly likely from what you have said.
It is certainly not right to say that it wasn't charged because the rape was old. Half the cases being prosecuted are historical sexual abuse.
The only other option is local newspapers.
I go to Woolwich fairly often and it is not a court attended by the local press.
All the best.
The law pages report appeals.
There is a court transcript in the crown court but it isnt available save for those with a nexus to the case.
There are online sites that randomly report the findings of courts but they are not transcripts and they are not in every case.
Usually they go for sensational cases - they are basically newspapers online as the entire industry is now online.
There are website that have case law but that online arises if there are appeals and even they don't contain the transcript of the Crown Court hearing or any ancillary orders unless that is the nature of the appeal.
Those are generally paying sites although bailli is free.
Woolwich Crown Court is a terrorist court which is why security is so high. It is fair to say they haven't heard terrorist cases for years but they do hear serious cases that are going to be more interesting to the press than this I'm afraid.
Even then they wouldn't normally report the restraining order.
The only other alternative is to try googling his name and see if it was reported somewhere online.
Sometimes that does call up reports. The advantage of the internet is that it freezes time.
