no i am not a witness.
a recent court ruling ( cousins - chang) found that a 17 year old is not an adult and therefore should be treated as a juvenile not an adult and an adult should be present when questioned. This was a case bought against the Home secretary last year relating to code C. New legislation is pending.
This related to being questioned under arrest , and my son is of course the victim not the criminal. But in your opinion does this not set precedent in all circumstances relating to 17 year olds and the Police ?
