Protection against intimidation
It is a criminal offence to intimidate anyone helping the police in an investigation. Contact the police immediately if you are harassed or threatened during an investigation or trial.
Victims and witnesses are also protected against witness intimidation for up to a year after the conclusion of a trial. If the offender is remanded in custody, released on bail or convicted the court can issue a restraining order.
