Hi - can you give me the background to this please - what was the crime and anything else relevant
Are you a witness for the Crown?
yes, but what did you say in your statement?
Why do the prosecution want you?
On the face of it, you are a defence witness.
In any event, neither party will be interested in your anxiety I'm afraid.
Once you make a statement to the police it can be used by either side and unless your evidence is agreed they will need you to give evidence in court.
They will only summons you if you refuse.
There are special measures that you can use if you are nervous about giving evidence.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Realistically probably screens.
It depends on your issues and by whom you are called.
I'm happy to continue with this but please rate my answer.
I'm afraid they will not have any interest in your memory problems.
They can always put your original statement to you.
