Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
For now please let me know whether you intend to get legal representation to fight this?
I wasn't planning to get legal representation.
Thanks, ***** ***** it possible to pay the £91 now or do I have to wait until the magistrates' hearing on 2nd October ? It's not clear whether I'll have to pay court costs for this hearing or not. It says that the court will consider the application from the Finnish authorities on that date, but that mean that I'll have to pay any costs incurred by their "consideration" in registering and enforcing the £91 fine ?
I would pay it now if you can and avoid any Court hearing.
If they have not requested anything further than the £91 then you wouldnt have to pay anything extra
Does that help?
Yes. I will contact them tomorrow and ask them if I can arrange payment. Thanks.
Great. Can I help with anything else today for you?
No that's fine thanks. The letter doesn't mention court costs so I just hope I can pay this before any court hearing and I don't incur any other costs. Thanks again.
Hi Alex - I called the magistrates' court and they told me that it would be advisable to attend the court hearing and that because it had already got to court then there would be court costs to pay despite your advice to the contrary. Court costs, however, were not referred to in the letter from Highbury Magistrates'.
I shall attend the hearing, but what would be your advice with regards ***** ***** I was told by the court?
OK Alex, thanks for that. I'll put that into practice then on Thursday when I attend the court.
