Hi there, the victim has the right to put the charge and withdraw it as some many times as she wants. Is a right of this criminal offence.
Is not matter that the prosecutor was there, you need to have your own lawyer and procced with him
Please ask if you need more help
Thank you. Do we have to return to spain to instruct a lawyer, or can this be done from the UK?
You can start with a power of Attorney, but you will be called to testify quickly. I think is better to start here in Spain, declare, and go back until needed and called to court
So it would be necessary to go to spain twice - once to withdraw and then to go to court? Would the second one also involve the boy being present??
You willbe call to court several times, some times you could manage with the atorney but is sure you will have to come several times
Why would it be so complex to withdraw a case when it is the victims right? She is keen not to let this become a major part of her life and was hoping to avoid this.
I know is hard, but it is the way it works here
OK. Thats not good news, but thank you for your help.
