  1. NOT SURE ABOUT THIS

    Incidents involving criminal acts against one’s spouse, whether or not married or divorced are always prosecutable.

    Not sure that the practice for Police to charge a spouse with ‘…Property-Related offences’ while still married and without the advice of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).

    Are the pawn-shop operators to be charged with ‘…Receiving Stolen Property as well?’
    Seems that this is heading to nowhere.

    Those nations with ‘…British Jurisprudence’ know this.

    If there is a law that expressly states that, well this ‘…Spouse could be eating souse at the Golden Grove Penitentiary.’
