I have been charged and summoned to court. My case has been started and adjourned due to running out of time in court. During cross examination of the arresting police officer (OIC in this matter), when asked where the statement of the other arresting officer was he refused to admit that the officer (that did not provide a statement) took part in the arrest. Even after producing his statement where he clearly states the other arresting officer was there and took part in the arrest, he still refused to acknowledge it and said he cannot remember. This went on for some time before the mater was adjourned. It struck me that he clearly did not want this to be heard by the magistrate and he was desperately trying to disguise the fact. Is there any law or policy that states an arresting officer must/should provide a statement in any arrest where the arrested is taken into custody? Thank you in advance for any advice on this matter.
