Hi all,
My question may seem odd but are police actually allowed to chase people/government departments to lay charges?
I self-disclosed to a government agency some irregularities that had occurred and they were ok with me providing the information and then working out a way of fixing it. The police heard that i was in discussion with them and they have now approached the department with a view to having me charged, I would have thought that the matter of charges should be at the discretion of the department and not influenced by the police.
Am i stupid to think that?
