I am sorry but I cannot give yougood news then. I’m afraid you are in difficulty here.
You could tell them you don’t wantto support a prosecution. However, bearin mind the answer below.
I’m afraid they can be very heavyhanded now. It is not really in thepublic interest in my view.
They will almostcertainly summons you if you are not already. Their current policy is to summons reluctant witnesses.
If you attend courtand resile from your statement they will just put your original statement toyou hearsay
The only realoption is to stay away although they may try to introduce your statementhearsay but it is weaker then. Butequally they may get a summons and arrest you on a witness warrant.
That said, you maybe in luck and they may let you retract.
If there arechildren in the house, social services will very probably investigate though.
I'm sorry this isn't the answer you wanted but it is the position thatyou face and I have a duty to inform you truthfully.
