Good Afternoon,

unfortunately no. If the police are relying on your statement to prosecute the matter, they will not allow you to withdraw it and they will issue you with the subpoenaed to appear and give evidence.

You can discuss the issue with the police officer, but in the end it is up to the prosecutor whether or not they will permit you to draw your statement.

If you are encouraged a person a good behaviour bond to approach you, and his Bond says that he cannot approach you then you should clearly indicate this to the police and it should be in your statement.

But it is a question for the police to determine whether or not they will permit you to withdraw your statement.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you wish a phone call please elect for one but be aware it will be an additional fee. If there is nothing further thank you for using my services.

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know

If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.

Regards
Leon
