I have read the complete post.
You have said that Karl and his widowed mother of suffered years of abuse. I don’t know who from what you do say that he is call the police on numerous occasions.
It seems that some of the neighbours allege that he is the one causing abuse.
You say that he is a fantastic gardener.
However that doesn’t answer the question as to whether he is subject to a lifelong ASBO. It seems not but I need a definitive answer please.
If it is untrue, then clearly it’s not only defamatory, it’s malicious and if there is a campaign of such activity, then the victim is entitled to call the police with a view to having the person that’s doing this prosecuted under the Protection from Harassment Act. Some police forces take harassment extremely seriously, and others not so and therefore, if the police that come out don’t do anything about this, make a complaint in writing to the Chief Constable and if necessary, to the Independent Police Complaints Commission.
I cannot comment on whether you should remove the person or not or whether this is a breach of the rules but if it isn’t true, it is of course defamatory.
Can I clarify anything else for you?
I am happy to answer any specific points arising from this.
