Witnesses
Q :

What can I do if I still have questions about the case or being a witness?

A :

You can contact the ICAC officer dealing with your case for help. If you cannot reach him immediately and you are in urgent need of general advice on testifying in court, court procedures or other related matters, or even if you require urgent help about the case, you can contact the ICAC 24-hour Report Centre at 25 266 366.

Q :

Do I have to testify in court?

A :

Not necessarily. Under normal circumstances, the court requires a witness to give evidence in court because the defendant denies having committed the offence and the witness’s evidence at court can help determine whether the defendant is guilty or not. Of course, if the defendant pleads guilty or the court accepts your written statement as evidence, there is no need for you to go to court. Whatever the circumstances, we will give you full support.

Q :

Will the ICAC contact me again?

A :

This depends on the individual case and the progress of the investigation. If we need to know more about your statement, we will contact you. On the other hand, if you have any further information concerning the case, you can directly contact the ICAC officer dealing with it.

Q :

How do I know if I am needed at court?

A :

If you are needed at court, we will usually inform you by notice or summons issued by court. You need not worry about the details as we will provide you with information about the court’s location and a leaflet explaining what is likely to happen there.
