Forums: Index > The Wizengamot > Squibs and dementors

Hi everyone! I saw on the main page, in the "Did you know" section something about squibs not being able to see dementors. Is that true? As I recall it, at Harry's trial in OotP, Harry's squib neighbour Arabella Figg states that squibs can see dementors. Correct me if I'm wrong and please enligth me Ohmbun 15:03, July 3, 2010 (UTC)

Actually, she was lying, and not even that well, in fact.--L.V.K.T.V.J.Hogwarts(Send an owl!) 15:06, July 3, 2010 (UTC)
OK...then how do you know she was lying? Where does it say that squibs can't see dementors?Ohmbun 15:09, July 3, 2010 (UTC)
According to Rowling, Mrs. Figg lied. Read this. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 15:10, July 3, 2010 (UTC)
Basically, she knew enough about them to describe an attack, but she could not and did not see the dementors. --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 18:04, July 3, 2010 (UTC)
