Hi if the person on the run has not been interviewed and charged then they are not a co defendant. They cannot be a co defendant until they have been arrested and charged in connection with the offence. They are at present a person of interest and they are avoiding arrest. I assume there is a warrant for their arrest if they are believed to be involved in the offence.

The case against your loved one can progress without this other person being present. Its important that he speaks to his lawyer and gets advice on how to proceed.

Secondary liability , A secondary party (more commonly known as an accessory) is one who aids, abets, influences or procures (commonly referred to as assists or encourages) D1 to commit the substantive offence, without being a principal offender. However, a secondary party can be prosecuted and punished as if he were a principal offender this is part of the Accessories and Abettors Act 1861.

Who cares what they say about us? Because when I am with you I am standing with an army.
