Hello, I hope you are well. My name is***** am a solicitor advocate and I will be assisting you with your question today. I am very sorry to hear of the problem you are experiencing and I will do my best to help you with this matter.
How was PACE breached by the police?
What was the reason for the arrest and seizure of property?
Errors do happen and wrong solicitors called, that is easy to put right and to call the correct lawyer. That is an error not a breach of PACE.
Likewise false allegations of any offence is not a breach of PACE. The police have a duty to investigate if sexual criminal allegations are made.
You should have been told the reason for the arrest when you were arrested. Again when booked into custody. If you claim this did not happen, that is very easy to prove as the custody centre is filmed and recorded. Your solicitor can challenge that matter.
If items have been seized and they have found illegal images on the items, they will remain seized, and if convicted the prosecution is likely to ask the court for forfeiture and destruction of those items.
If the arrest and detention were unlawful, then yes it is possible the CPS would not follow through on a prosecution.
They appear to be the search warrant
Again, you should speak with you solicitor should you wish to challenge any documents.
They should indeed make a detailed list of anything seize. A correct and proper way to do this is for one officer to be the exhibits officer, noting carefully what has ben taken.
Your very welcome, the rating option appears once I finish assisting.
Can I assist or clarify anything further?
If that is what they have taken it could be acceptable.
your very welcome, and you.
