Was this car taken by the woman? What was her relationship to your son?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
he met her once the second time is when she stole car.
Solicitor: Chris The Lawyer, Lawyer replied 4 months ago

Your son can go get the car from the current person in possession of it. He must also register a property security on the car. What is the car worth?

Solicitor: Chris The Lawyer, Lawyer replied 4 months ago

He is still the owner. Registration of the owner is not proof of ownership and he can get the car back. If someone bought the car they will need to sue the woman

Solicitor: Chris The Lawyer, Lawyer replied 4 months ago

He could go to the Disputes Tribunal and sue the woman

ok but what about the cop? he was manipulating everything and instead of getting car back he lied, one min he said car in his yard. another cop said tow truck got it, we didn't know who to believe or what to do
Solicitor: Chris The Lawyer, Lawyer replied 4 months ago

Normally I would suggest the IPCA but they appear to have not looked at this closely. You could try them again now that you have more information about what happened

complaint authority said case closed. reason being son said so, but this is not true. what advice can you give on the whole situation? it's unfair justice. we went online police site check if car was reported ztolen..it was not. Cop lied from the start and said son not getting his car back so he gave it back to their who sold it twice. we don't no whose got it. any advice how to get it back plz?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
gave it back to the theif
Solicitor: Chris The Lawyer, Lawyer replied 4 months ago

If you can find the car you can do get it from the person who has it. But you need to register on the Personal Securities Register first with your sons interest as the owner. Does the girl have the car now? Did she have some dispute with your son which is why she took the car?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
no she was just a one night fling. but lied to police she sold the car for money to feed her habit.. friends told son. where does he go fling personal register? can police do what this cop did? can they cum son house 1am stay till 3.30am manipulating the course of justice just bcoz he's a cop?

Solicitor: Chris The Lawyer, Lawyer replied 4 months ago

That site explains about the securities register.

The problem is that if she is telling one story but your son says something else, then the police are reluctant to act. So I think sue the woman in the Disputes Tribunal and get a court judgment against her if you want
