hello i will assist

I am a criminal law solicitor advocate.

As the person who was arrested is an adult, there is little you can do about the arrest or obtaining information from the police. As they are an adult, the police are not obliged to give you any information.

The person who has been arrested, will be taken to the nearest police custody centre, where they would be interviewed.

After the interview, he will either be released by police with no further action to be taken, released on police bail pending further enquireies, charged and released on police bail to attend court, or charged and remanded in custody to the next court Monday morning.
