    If a person is certain that justice has not been done, there is always the option to follow the route of Private Prosecution

    We had an interesting question sent to us yesterday by email.

     “In September 2017 my youngest son was assaulted in a bar and he laid a charge against the perpetrator. We have now been told by the investigating officer that the senior public prosecutor has declined to prosecute. My son wants to proceed and we would like to know how one goes about a private prosecution. Can you possibly advise as to whether or not this is a possibility and, if so, what is the process and how would he go about it?”
