Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is Jo C, I’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.
I presume that the police make this allegation because you complained to them? They didn't attend unbidden from the ether?
And how did the doctor come to believe he had assaulted you?
if you mean that there is a domestic violence protection notice then that lasts 28 days. If these are bail conditions then they will last up until the end of the prosecution unless they choose to remove them. They may do that if you are refusing to act as a witness though as the bail objections are not really met. Can I clarify anything for you? Jo
They do but not when there are criminal offences being investigated. It can happen without your consent but they won't do that at least not at this stage.
He can apply to vary his bail conditions.
Oh there is no point in using that form yet.
There is absolutely no point. There is no basis for that application at this stage. Their conditions are reasonable and appropriate. That form is for people who are on bail for two years or the like with conditions that prevent them working.
Yes, but this has been a few days. I'm very sorry but you made a complaint. They have to investigate. The solution is not to complain I'm afraid but that doesn't help now. If you are intent you can make an application but it won't led to a change until he is charged
Yes. Though that might be quicker.
They can't rely on it as recent complaint unless you give evidence and confirmed what you said was true. They may not know that yet but it is the clear effect of the law. They could rely on it from the point of view of what he himself observed though and whether it is consistent with his defence but it is pretty weak.
I'm not sure what else I can say about recent complaint. They cannot rely on it.
Just don’t speak to them. You don’t have to provide any information
Yes, they won't give up lightly
I have covered this above?
Yes, they can comment on what you said. I have covered all this above.
Like I said, the doctor can give evidence about what you said.
Yes, you are being paranoid.
I understand you are worried but I cannot give you a different answer to the ones above and we are going round in circles. I have answered all these questions before several times.
