What would you like to know about this please?
Is there any reason you think this isn't legal?
I'm not sure what you mean? It has been four minutes since your last post?
I am responding almost immediately.
The reason you may be experiencing delay is that you keep posting before I have responded which pushes the question to the back of my list.
Yes, I'm not sure why you think they should not?
An allegation of crime has been made.
It has to be investigated.
It would have been better if he had made a no comment interview which is what the duty solicitor would have advised.
He must have been offered the duty solicitor if he was there under arrest. It is a requirement in law and I've never known the police breach it.
He might well have refused but that is a different issue.
The police won't lift his bail conditions until the end of the case. They are prosecution witnesses.
I'm really sorry but that is just plain not possible. I was a police station legal advisor for years before coming to the Bar. There are problems with the police but they do not fail to offer a solicitor. It is a script read by the detention officer when people are booked in.
If he was there as a volunteer that would be different but that is not what he says.
I would imagine they are either not interested or the police have chosen not to inform them. In fairness, there isn't an immediate risk as he is on bail with conditions of non contact.
Well, the solution to that is for his wife not to make reports to the police. She is to blame and she alone.
And the children should be encouraged to understand that. Only one person responsible for the disadvantage of a police investigation and that is the person who involves them.
Yes, I understand.
All the best.
