I'm sure i'm not the only one who wishes there were no announcements about imminent arrests. It sets people agog for names and gives time for people to set their affairs in order if there is anything to hide or defend - which would defeat the object.
I agree with that, it could give a person who is guilty time to disappear, hide evidence , create false alibis etc. It also gives the press and internet plenty of time to start guessing names, some of which may be totally wrong and unfair.
I also wish the media had not printed such detail of Saviles or indeed anyones abuse until after the investigation , you can ask for victims to come forward without such detail, this has given any bandwagon jumpers the opportunity to make up a claim and for compensation and possibly get away with it, not only does that annoy me it cheapens the genuine victims in all of this.
