Hello
Well he needs to be formally given a warning in respect of any arrest, so at this point, it would be simply for questioning.

You need not attend the interview however. I would strongly suggest not attending, for fear of having him say something that will incriminate him.

He does have a right to silence.

I wish to help you in this situation.
