FAQs – Frequently Asked Questions

What are the alternatives to prosecution?

There are quite a few options available as alternative solutions instead of prosecution. They range from no further action which means the police are dropping charges. Another option is cautions, which means warning against future offences but releasing an offender for the moment.


Conditional caution is a modified version of a warning where if the conditions are violated, possibility of offences could rise. Fixed Penalty could also be used as a resolution to get the offender to not repeat their mistake. Community service is a sort of reformatory punishment which has proven to be a positively regarded method for minor offences.

Will I be ‘Bailed to Return’ or Released Under Investigation (RUI) after the interview?

Police generally released a person after bail payment, and assigned a date for return as well. The investigation doesn’t close after an interview so the authorities keep searching for clues and evidence, cross referencing them with previous statements of suspects to fish out a suspect.


In the practical experience of our lawyers at Efstathios Efstathiou LLC, it was observed that people under suspicion were called for returning to the police time and again. Bail would pay bail again and they would be released only to be asked to return.


Recent changes in law have placed curbs on the authorities from abusing the bail process. People will no longer be charged for bail constantly. Only if the officer deems it necessary will a person be required to pay bail, and that too will require approval of higher officials.


People under investigation will then be released and called in for interviews periodically as the cases progress. It’s best to hire professional legal services to handle the talks so that you don’t say anything that would cast suspicion over you.

How can a solicitor help me prepare for a police interview?

Legal experts know how to handle police pressure. First, your lawyers will ask the authorities for details of the accusations. After the information has been obtained your legal representative will conduct an in person discussion with you to highlight the strength of your case. You will be given carefully examined analysis of the evidence against you and how to handle the questions by the police.


Whatever words you speak, if you refuse to answer questions, and any actions you take, all impact your case proceedings. Having a seasoned criminal defence lawyer handle your decisions and guide you with answers is critical. Our firm Efstathios Efstathiou LLC has a team of lawyers who will provide you with the best plans for getting you out of your predicament.


If an interview has been arranged for you, you can communicate to the authorities your right to meet with your lawyer in advance. This way you will be better prepared for handling the police interview without any mental stress of being by yourself at a police station.

Do I need a solicitor for a police interview?

Yes, having a legal representative will better your chances of not incriminating yourself at police interviews. At Efstathios Efstathiou LLC, we have vast experience in handling cases of such matters for both major and minor offences.The management has assigned a portion of its workforce to a dedicated team of specialized legal experts for police representation cases. They are available at all times and every day of the week on a rotational basis.

Will I be Prosecuted?

Prosecutions aren’t easily carried out. The authorities have to establish the burden of proof and justify conviction by eliminating every aspect of doubt from their case against a person. Prosecution also has to be for the good of the public.


If the conditions aren’t met then it’s a high possibility that Prosecution will fail at securing a conviction. This will also open the opportunity to get the proceedings quashed and the person under investigation to be set free.


Having legal representation will maximise the chances of getting the legal proceedings stopped during initial stages.

What is a voluntary police interview under caution?

Interview under caution are also referred to as Caution plus 3 interviews are carried out by the authorities when they suspect someone regarding a crime. A person who is being interviewed will be allowed a legal representative to accompany them or have the interview arranged after a briefing with the legal counsel.

Will I be arrested?

The authorities have the power to arrest someone if it’s felt that it’s necessary. Arresting will lead to further probing by the police and they will detain you at the police station while search operations are conducted to places where you go frequently, and at your home.


Record of the arrest will be entered in the police database, your photograph, fingerprints and DNA samples will be kept for references for follow up investigations. Employment opportunities will also be impacted going forward and even if charges haven’t been pressed. Just the fact that you were arrested will lock you out of potential jobs.
