Hello what would you like to know about this?
Have you done this before?
You have never called the police before to any personal dispute ever? It would make difference.
Ok. Have you made a statement?
OK. There is no way around that then.
You can tell the police that you are reluctant but they will summons you. These are serious allegations and taxpayer's money has been spent upon it's investigation.
I have to say that attempted murder is a very hopeful charge which they might well reduce but it is still likely to be a serious charge.
Whether you answer the summons is another matter. They will pursue you. It is not in the public interest to have the money of the taxpayer wasted I'm afraid. They will probably seek a witness warrant if you don't answer the summons although witness warrants do have their limitations.
Generally speaking, the more serious the allegation the more likely they are to pick you up on a witness warrant.
You do have the advantage of not having a lengthy history of summonsing the police to personal arguments which will help but given the serious allegations they are not likely to drop this I'm afraid.
I'm very sorry but that is the reality.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Is he on bail?
You can visit him in prison. Nobody can stop you doing that.
