A neighbour has accused me of assaulting him back in December 2014, the police were involved and statements were taken and no charges were brought against me.
The police returned around March time to inform me that the case was being closed.
Yesterday (30/07/15) I received a call from the police informing me that my neighbour has come forward with new evidence and that the case was being reopened and a report was being sent to the procurator fiscal.
I thought it strange that a report was being sent to the PF even though I've never been charged, is this right?
Don't know if it matters but I'm in scotland.
