Hello all

Is it possible to disclose a statement which has been submitted for a Section 8 application to the police?

It contains very serious libelous comments (not about me)

Anyone with the knowledge I can pm?

Children Act proceedings are private. You would normally have to obtain an order from the court to disclose pleadings to a third party or even to another court.

It may be possible to mention that the version of events that is currently being relied upon stands in stark contrast to a sworn statement in Children Act proceedings. This may allow the court to order the release of the said statement into the current action.

However, it is unclear whether you are talking about existing or proposed proceedings and you have not clarified in which court the action is to take place.

What exactly is your goal here?
