Amy Rollings establishes serving police officer is fundamentally dishonest at holiday illness trial

The Claimant, a serving police officer, described becoming ill on the 3rd day of her holiday to Egypt. She said she had the most severe gastrointestinal symptoms and was confined to her hotel room.

However it emerged that the Claimant had, whilst allegedly so unwell, been on an excursion in the desert which involved bouncing around on a camel and been able to take a boat trip.

During cross examination the Claimant was unable to explain away either of these striking inconsistencies, nor was she able to explain why she had not sought medical attention or had any time away from work, despite insisting her symptoms had continued for 2-3 months.

The Judge found that the Claimant simply could not have had the symptoms she alleged. There was no objective evidence to support any of them. In all the circumstances she was found to be a fundamentally dishonest individual and ordered to pay the Defendant’s costs of the proceedings.
