Our client from Manchester faced a family split after her engagement and wedding rings were stolen. She had been a mobile carer for many years and gave up her job to care for her mother-in-law after she was diagnosed with cancer. The client and her sister-in-law had always had differences but agreed to care for their mother-in-law. After the mother’s death, the client’s sister-in-law has been accused of stealing the engagement ring. The client requested a lie detector test, which both parties agreed to take.

The Importance of Focusing on the Central Issue:
The client provided a list of 18 questions to ask her sister-in-law during the lie detector test. However, these questions lost focus on the central issue, resulting in unimportant issues being raised. The experienced examiners from our Manchester office guided both clients on how to formulate the correct questions to address the central issue.

The Lie Detector Test Results:
Our client’s sister-in-law was examined first and denied taking the rings. However, she failed the test, and her only comment was that she expected it, indicating acceptance of the truth. Our client was then examined and passed the polygraph examination, indicating her innocence.

Formulating the correct questions and achieving a successful lie detector test can be challenging for clients to achieve on their own. Our team of fully qualified examiners in Manchester can advise clients on question formulation and answer any questions they may have.
