Investigating an allegation of assault for a private prosecution

AnotherDay were instructed to investigate an allegation of assault. Despite the incident being reported to police, it was decided at the time that no further action was to be taken. Displeased with the police response, our investigators were instructed to compile the evidence required for an evidential review. Our investigators obtained section 9 statements from the victims, and completed a case bundle which included a comprehensive case summary, witness list, evidence list, schedule of used, unused and sensitive material. The case bundle pack was then passed over to an independent law firm to review and apply the evidential threshold test with a view to a potential private prosecution.

Outcomes for the client

  • Provided the victims with the response that was required to support a criminal allegation 
  • Resulted in obtaining all material required for an evidential review.
