Please bear with me in thatcaseIt is my pleasure to try and assist you with this today. Please bear with mewhile I gather some further information from you in order for me to be able toadvise you fully.
Unless I have all the facts that I need, my answerwould not be accurate.
I was charged, went to crown court and acquitted. Can I use the MG11 statements (defence and prosecution) in my grievance as evidence against the individual who fabricated the allegation. It is not the allegation thats my concern, it is the the use of the MG11 out side the court and police environment. Is it still restricted or privileged.
That doesn't assist. I need full background to the case and grievance please
As it is a public forum, I don't wish to discuss the case..... sorry. The grievance is he lied, evidence was produced in court, the Jury saw the evidence and I was acquitted. The MG11 states the accusation, I wish to produce the MG11 as evidence to show he said it and the accusation.
Sorry for being vague but does the charge have any bearing on me producing the MG11 as evidence in a grievance....
Just to clarify... I can produce the MG11 as evidence in my work grievance and if needed give a copy as evidence with no recourse from the police.
