Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Did the Police prosecute the other person for wasting Police time?
Ok - if they are not prosecuted for wasting Police time then in reality there is nothing you can do.
People make complaints all the time and the Police either take no action or there is not enough evidence
Even if matters go to Court and someone is found not guilty, does not give an automatic to sue the person who made the complaint - otherwise nothing would ever go to Court.
Its only where there has been a conviction for wasting Police time could you have any chance.
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.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
If convicted then you can issue proceedings. As for the lawyer, I dont know, maybe a conflict of interest.
Its hard with that element as you say as I havent seen all the evidence.
Does that clarify?
If I could ask you to rate my answer before you go today, by clicking on the 5 stars or happy face, otherwise the site does not pay me for the time spent with you today. Thank you in advance and good luck!
