​Where a complaint involves relatively serious allegations or offences, the Chambers Magistrate may direct the police to investigate into the matter. Where such an order is made, the case will be adjourned until after investigations have concluded and the report furnished to the Court.

Complainants may wish to note that the Chambers Magistrate is not entitled to order the police to prosecute or issue warnings to the Respondents. Such decisions may only be exercised by the Public Prosecutor.
