Thank you for your question. My name is Jo and I will try to help with this.

Is there any reason you think they would?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

my daughter thinks they will try to get evidence my interviewing us all


Customer: replied 4 years ago.

as there isnt any evidence just that my grandaughter has made a statement to the police

Expert:  Jo C. replied 4 years ago.

There is evidence. She has made an allegation. That is evidence.

I cannot immediately see any reason to interview anybody else. There's no allegation against any of you I presume? You are not witnesses?

If you are witnesses and you are going to support the defence then its probably better to make a statement to his solicitors rather than the police though. The solicitors are less likely to ask you questions that support the prosecution account.

Can I clarify anything for you?

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!
