You can as the witness provides no evidence and the case is dropped.
Yeah but you can't pay money to make sure that there's no way the criminal case will ever go ahead. The witness can always change their mind later on. And to be honest, rightfully so. The idea of rapists using money to stay out of prison isn't one I'm a fan of.

Am I being ridiculous in thinking this is very poor reporting from the BBC?

Ronaldo's lawyers have claimed the documents are fake, and this is how the BBC decided to report it on their home page -





Is it just me that thinks that's potentially very misleading as a headline?

What's wrong with "Ronaldo Lawyers claim documents fake" or anything else that couldn't be mistaken for a factual statement that the documents are actually fabricated?

The whole thing has been reported in a way that makes it look pretty clear that his agent and lawyers have been very busy
