Why are the police involved in this?
What threat did you make?
Did you say kill in arabic?
ok. Are you asking if you will be prosecuted?
Well, it depends. I haven't had the chance to view the evidence so it is not really possible to say.
If you made a threat using the word that you would kill them then that is a problem. If the Arabic translation changes the face of that comment then that might be helpful although you are not charged with threats to kill. Threats to kill is hard to prove because the Crown has to shown specific intent. The public order act provides a catch all though. All the Crown has to show is that a person was likely to fear immediate violence.
It is quite unlikely, I'm afraid, that anybody is going to accept that this was a defensive action unless, of course, the other person made similar statements first.
I'm very sorry but that is the reality.
Can I clarify anything for you?
