My brother is due for release in 4 weeks ,he was convicted of culpable homicide I'm his only family but live in Dundee they are saying he must return to Inverness,
Thank you for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland.
Why are they saying that?
Has he given an address in Inverness?
He should be free to say where he intends to stay, especially if he has limited choices.
-Could you explain the situation a little more?
