I was arrested in October 2012 for fraud allegations which I denied and provided the police with evidence. I was re bailed about 8 times was supposed to go back on 25/4/2014 but I received a letter that stated something along the lines of:-
The bail is to be cancelled due to the fact there is an unrealistic chance of a conviction.However they stated that the file will remain open if further evidence comes to light and there can be a chance of a rearrest. Please note that the investigation has been going since October 2012.
Yes can they do this and the chances of them re opening the investigation (please bear in mind the initial arrest was in October 2012) I have been warned / advised by the investigating officer to stay away from the people who made the allegations in the first place
Also your advise should I contact the police officer to get my items back or let my solicitor deal with this.
The nature of allegations was fraud by misrepresentation which I denied and provided them with evidence that the company I worked was fraudulent and the Directors were transferring monies into that account and I had no control of the transfers. My bank account was used but nothing was spent from that account so all monies were there and which have been taken by the police.
The initial arrest took place in October 2012 and the items taken were:-
(1) 2 Computers one is broken the other has photos of my son when he was a baby and both belong to my partner.
(2) 2 Mobile phone one my partners which has all her contact details and photos as well and my phone.
I have had a word with the investigating officer and he has told me to keep well away from the Directors and CPS do not want to pursue the matter but I forgot to ask him about my items who made the allegations and I "feel" they will now be investigated.
