How may I assist?
Thank you for that additional information, that will be helpfull in allowing me to advise you today.
I would advice against that. You are unlikely to get anywhere with such a claim.
Simply because the police do not proceed further does not mean a person is innocent of the allegation being made against them.
The p9lice have advised that there was lack of evidence to proceed. That does not mean they have no evidence, simply insufficient for the crown prosecution service to secure a successful prosecution.
You deciding to try and take action against the other person for making a report to the p9lice, may just give the cps additional evidence of a harassment nature and allow them to review and bring charges against you.
Can I assist or clarify anything further?
Thank you for using Just Answer and for allowing me to assist you with your legal enquiry. I am pleased I was able to be of assistance. Please do not hesitate to come back to me for further advice on this or any other legal matter. It will be my pleasure to be able to assist you again.
What happened is very common. If a person thinks they are a victim of an offence, they can report that to the police.
It is then the p9lice who decide whether to arrest, detain and interview the allegation suspect or not. The person making the complaint has no say in whether the police arrest or not.
In an ideal world, the police would investigate first and then arrest if needed, but, i
unfortunately very often it does not work that way and the p9lice arrest first and ask and investigate second, unfortunately the law allows for this,
As I have advised, because you were not cautioned or charged with an offence, can simply mean there was lack of “sufficient “ evidence to satisfy the cps to charge.
