Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.
In the end they will have to put it to you in interview but they don't have to tell you in advance. There are lots of reasons for it. One being that you are entitled to the protection under PACE of a caution and a tape recording and legal advice before you start offering any account. Also, there are some people who would start concealing evidence and concocting a defence if they were told in advance the case against them.
Can I clarify anything for you?
