A truly excellent result in a very difficult situation, stalking/intimidation charges were completely dropped by the magistrate, thank you very much Osman Samin.

And thank you Steven Patrick for your reassurance in explaining aspects of the law to us, as we were feeling very dismayed and overwhelmed initially.
