    So without going into full detail as it's a long story... One of my mum's brothers, who she was close with, had a life threatening disease in another country, and the uncle I reference in the title said he was looking after him there, stole lots of money from us by saying this and did not even tell us that he passed away until the day after he died. He has always lied to us, let my unwell uncle die alone with nobody by his side as he did not even notify us he was back in hospital, and he has stolen lots of money from us. In fact, he used to live in a different country, and stole lots of money from a company he worked at there to move and fund a new luxurious lifestyle for his family. Is it wrong to want to get him arrested, even though my parents would rather I did not get involved? If so, is there any way to go about doing this as I do not even know where he worked or lived... Neither of the two countries, the one he lived in and the one he lives in, have justice systems that are as strong as ours in the UK. My parents see no way of getting justice for my deceased uncle, and this manipulative uncle keeps sending my father rude, strongly worded emails as well. I don't know what to do but I cannot let this man cause my family any more stress, as it's taking a toll on their health too. Please help

    I'd report him to the police

    I'm not sure the police here could do anything though, as he stole the money in Africa and now lives in Asia...
