Police have told victims of a conwoman she will not be prosecuted - because she does not have any money to confiscate. The police declined to comment on the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) decision, which has been formally challenged by at least two of her outraged victims.The entire case stinks to high heaven:
To date police have not asked to see any of the evidence the Advertiser has collected, including a tape recording of a conversation between Amar and Desai in which she promises to repay the money she took.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman could only say the investigating officer was “aware” of our material.*sighs*
They did spring into action when the chance came to put the boot into someone, though:
Desai attempted to block our investigating by alleging our reporter was "persecuting" her.
The police gave him a harassment warning and, after they rejected our complaint, he has now appealed to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC).I can’t wait to see that one!
I was told at the time that when police receive an allegation of harassment they are not required to carry out an investigation to discern the validity of the claims. As ridiculous as that seems, I had hoped they would at least investigate as part of the complaint I raised.
Instead it seems they have again taken the account of a convicted fraudster and serial liar at face value.I wonder why..? Professional courtesy?
