Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, and thank you for your question. I am your Expert and I will provide the answer you require.
1. Given the seriousness of the allegations made of paedophilia, you should see a solicitor near where you live who spcialises in Defamation law and get legal proceedings issued against the neighbour seeking an injunction and damages to prevent the spread of these false allegations. An injunction will prevent him saying or repeating any of the allegations. You can seek an interlocutory injunction before the proceedings to stop the allegations immediately. This is how you get the neighbour falsely spreading the allegations. Such an injunction can be obtained within a week, should you contact the solicitor today.
2. Be aware that the fact a complaint has been made to the police will not prevent you getting an injunction, as the law will not protect a false complaint. So, you should present this fact as part of a campaign being run against you in getting the injunction.
3. You are welcome to the advice. If you require any further clarification or if there is any other issue arising in relation to your question, I am happy to help further and provide additional information.
4. Glad to be of assistance. Have a good day.
