legal eagle : thank you for using Just Answer
legal eagle : May I ask
legal eagle : Are these allegations told to other people?

Dear Customer,

thank you for responding

As this is quite a severe accusation he could be charged with libel

In order to do that the incident has to be reported to the police

There is also the possibility to get an injunction that forbids him to repeat these accustions.

This must be done beforr a cilivilian court

How expensive is this to do? At the moment other issues are being addressed in court and this is a side issue to the main one. An avidavid has been lodged with the allegations and has been replied to. In the meantime the person is still making these allegations and another person has taken this up as well.
