What is Released Under Investigation (RUI)?


This is when an individual is released from police custody while the police continuing to investigate the alleged criminal offence. There are no time limits for the investigation and no conditions to follow, unlike conditional bail. However, despite the lack of conditions, it is still inadvisable for people who have been released under investigation to make contact with the claimant or any witnesses as this could be deemed to be intimidation or perverting the course of justice, both of which offences, if proved, carry prison sentences.
