No, that would perverting the course of justice and then you would be at risk of custody. Nobody is suggesting that you do that. What is being requested is that you comply with S172 or argue reasonable diligence as I have already explained.
The issue is not that have you been honest. The issue is that you have not complied with S172 and have not attended court to argue the only defence that you may have.
I will opt out for you as I can see you are displeased with my answers so far.
