    Unfortunely after four weeks of court and facing my attackers and their mates who threatened us in and out of court including following us after aday in court to our car and so on we have developed exellent technique’s of evasion and so the war goes on.
    Trying hard to keep my sanity but we proceed to go on regardless whilst looking over my shoulder consistantly every day seems to be just a way of survival I have a restaining order in place but thats a joke the police and ooo have adviced my to stop calling them and wasting thier time that they are to hard to catch.
