    Hi,

    Victims are entitled to make a statement of no complaint (or no further police action). However, the police is under no obligation to act accordingly and may decide to proceed with the charge if they are of the opinion that it is in the public interest to do so. Generally, such a statement is not affected by the actions (or pleading) of the accused.
