Our associate solicitor Arlene Mansoor was privately instructed by our professional client who had been arrested following a rape allegation that had been made against him. The allegation was vehemently denied by our client who always stated that the contact between him and the complainant had been consensual.
Following further investigation by the firm further witness evidence was secured and provided to the Police together with written representations urging that the investigation should be withdrawn. in our view, the further evidence secured proved that there was no basis to the allegation that had been made against our client. Following consideration of our submissions, together with the fresh witness evidence secured, the Police decided to discontinue the investigation. The firm is very happy that our client is now free of these proceedings and able to continue with his life and career with his reputation and good character intact.
