Except in the case of a young person, when a charge is laid against that person, the Information that is laid is no longer private, unless perhaps there is ongoing investigation for more suspects. To get the info from the Information, there is a process to follow to get it. I'm not sure why your friend hasn't been told what the accused's name is, but perhaps she should contact crown counsel and ask?
"Never give a match up halfway through. Never say that you do not feel up to it, that your condition is bad, and throw in the towel. Fight to the very end, always looking for your chance to break through." - Kazuzo Kudo
