Dear Police Service of Northern Ireland,

Could you please inform me why my neighbour, whom made false
allegations for several years and gave me a criminal record for
those false allegations, then proceeded to make further false
allegations only for the charges to be dropped because of a lie
detector test.

I would like you to inform me why this lady was not charged for
making false allegations, wasting police time and tax payer's
money.

Also please inform me the amount of people whom are actually
charged with making false allegations?

Yours faithfully,

Diane Taylor
