  1. So, just how do the "others" prevent the attack? . I am fully aware that people are threatened all the time and that the current process cannot /does not protect them, but apart from locking up the perp without any due legal process there is only a certain amount that can be done. What do you suggest, apart from some sort of draconian law where the alleged victim only has to say that the person is threatening them and the perp is immediately locked up on suspicion and is never released.
  2. Reading not entirely between the lines what you really want is for this person, without so much as due process to be locked up and the key thrown away. This will not happen because , fortunately, there's due legal process in the UK,so she needs to think how to solve the situation, not by making everyone responsible,because that does not solve the situation. She needs to take positive action, as I have already said, if she is in so much fear of her life then these unavoidable commitments pale into insignificance compared to being killed. This is where I am talking about a negative attitude, every suggestion that has been made has been rejected for a reason which is not substantial in relation to the alleged threat to kill. I gave a link to a personal defence spray which is totally legal. I suspect that will also be rejected for some reason.
  3. It is all very well stating that all and sundry will be held responsible, but the person who is responsible is the person who is issuing the threats. The Police cannot sit with the person 24/24 unless there is positive proof that an attack is imminent and I do not quite see what an MP or anyone else can do. There have been several rather good suggestions on this thread, but the OP seems to have adopted a rather negative dismissive attitude to these suggestions rather than being positive and proactive. The person needs to have witnesses to these threats, that is a simple matter of fact before the police can arrest and prosecute. Tape recording conversations is one method, always having someone with you, the police have specialists who can advise, but ultimately the target of the harassment needs to take positive action. Perhaps something like this http://www.c-p-p.co.uk/farbgel-criminal-identifier-defence-spray Protection from Harassment Act 1997 deals with the situation
  4. The rules appear to have changed and working in one country but living in another now allows you to have 2 health cards, one for each country. Your dependants will onle have one card ,ie where they live. http://europa.eu/youreurope/citizens/work/cross-border-worker/social-security/index_en.htm To answer the question a friend of mine went to Limoges to have a spinal operation as the Doctor did not rate either Angouleme or Bordeaux
  5. Perhaps I am misunderstanding but if you are working in the UK you are covered by the NHS. Only your family are covered under the French health care system by means of an S form. If that is correct then you need to obtain permission from the NHS to have the operation carried out in France. http://www.nhs.uk/NHSEngland/Healthcareabroad/plannedtreatment/Pages/Introduction.aspx gives you the info on how to apply, what the refund proceedure is etcetc.
  6. I assume from your outrage that it is based on the fact that the person who refused treatment did so for religious reasons or do you think that no one should have the right to refuse treatment of any kind?

  21. To answer that question. You can tow a caravan with a French car driving licence (Permis B) provided the combined weight does not exceed 3500kgs. AS most caravan/car combinations are within this limit there will be no problem
  22. Another banker at it http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/world-news/former-banker-held-over-sex-charge-16006511.html
  23. For clarity ,and in the particular case of the OP. URSSAF or Unions de Recouvrement des Cotisations de Sécurité Sociale et d'Allocations Familiales,are the collection agency for CPAM . If you have French health care via CMU then URSSAF are the people who collect your payments, however appart from paying them there should be no need for any contact with them ,as you will deal with CPAM
  24. If you have found an account of the accident does that not say which hospital your friend is in ? Then telephone the hospital .
