Hi,
Thank you for your question and welcome.
My name is ***** ***** I will assist you.
The UK Border Agency does not monitor county court judgments if you are entering the UK on a temporary basis. This will not be dealt with as a criminal matter, it is a civil matter at worst and therefore all the company could have done is sought a court order ordering payment in your absence.
If you have not received a demand for this money in the last 6 years, then the company that you owe it to might statute barred from claiming it under the Limitation Act 1980.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Kind regards
AJ

Thank you for your answer..No need to worry then....However is this debt probably still valid...i mean is there a chance that interests are being charged every year? i changed adress during the last years so there is no way i know if i have any notice....
