Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Just so that I am clear is she a witness and is this a criminal Court she has been asked to attend please?
Thank you for getting back so promptly.
Happy to help
I assume its a criminal matter she is required to attend for?
The hearing is taking place in Highbury Magistrates Court (51 Holloway Road London, N7 8JA).
No, she is not a witness, the man in question threatened and verbally abused her. Her boyfriend is a witness.
Ok. She does not need a Solicitor or lawyer.
I am not sure why she is going, if she is not a witness, but either the Defence or Police want her there
But she is not on trial so no, she does not need legal representation
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
So why does she need to be there? Will she be questioned or put 'on the spot' so to speak? Perhaps the police may want her there in order to charge her for the assault on one of their officers?
If she gave a statement to the Police then that is what it is about
She will be asked to look through her statement and then if gets called into Court, asked to recall what happened
She will be asked questions by the Prosecution and Defence
But that is the only reason she needs to attend
Does that clarify?
Yes, I think so. Thank you.
If she does not know why is going then she should ask - she should be told

Apparently they will be sending her a letter that should tell all she needs to know - I trust...
Yes I would think so
