Thanks for the information and the time.
I am sorry but I cannot give you good news then. I’m afraid you are in difficulty here.
You could tell them you don’t want to support a prosecution. However, bear in mind the answer below.
I’m afraid they can be very heavy handed now. It is not really in the public interest in my view.
They will almost certainly summons you if you are not already. Their current policy is to summons reluctant witnesses.
If you attend court and resile from your statement they will just put your original statement to you hearsay
The only real option is to stay away although they may try to introduce your statement hearsay but it is weaker then. But equally they may get a summons and arrest you on a witness warrant.
That said, you may be in luck and they may let you retract.
If there are children in the house, social services will very probably investigate though.
I'm sorry this isn't the answer you wanted but it is the position that you face and I have a duty to inform you truthfully.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more information.
Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
