Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is*****’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.
What can I do for you?
Yes, no problem.
So what would you like to know?
Do they have any money?
I can’t really give you good news but I have to tell you thetruth.
You cannot prevent a person who is intent from makingreports to the police. All you can dois defend them afterwards.
Depending on what has happened, you do have the option towrite to them warning them of the laws of defamation and to stop making falseallegations but that might make things much worse depending on the history.
In terms of suing afterward, you do have the option of adefamation action. That is obviouslyonly worth bringing if your accuser has the money to pay. Otherwise it is a very expensive exercise toget no more than an injunction not to repeat that specific falsehood.
Hope this helps.
Can Iclarify anything for you?
