Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
What is it you want to know about this today please?
Do you have any previous?
On what basis do you say they should drop it?
Ok - well it wont be dropped on that basis.
If they dont turn up at trial then you will be found not guilty. If there is no CCTV that does not make any difference to whether you will be prosecuted.
There was no CCTV for example in the Rolf Harris case but he was still prosecuted.
Without seeing all the evidence its hard to say what the outcome is.
But on the basis the majority of witnesses wont attend I think you will be found not guilty.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Retraction is saying it is not true and they have made it up.
I assume that is not what you are saying, just that they dont suppose the prosecution. Yes, they can give a statement saying they dont support it.
They can stay quiet so not to get a summons
Does that clarify?
All the best.
