Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Have they given you a reason why?
The answer is NO.
The reason is that when you make a complaint to the Police, you are not in charge of the case, the Police are.
The law says that the Police have no duty to you. Therefore as the case belongs to the Police, it is up to them (and the Prosecutor) as to what happens.
You are the complainant, the witness to the case. Therefore as such you have no right whatsoever to the criminal case documents
Under the law (Criminal Procedure (Scotland) Act 1995) or Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 (England and Wales) you are not entitled to copy documents.Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
You can try to apply to Court for disclosure, but as I have indicated above it is not likely to succeed.
You cant make them bring it and you cant make them disclose.
But try applying to the Court.
Does that clarify? Alex
