Yes, go on?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Can you appeal the decision if you feel the trial was not conducted correctly? If so, on what grounds? My friend was also declined a Mackenzie friend with no reason given, even though the pre-trial judge the day before confirmed that was OK. He was also not given opportunity to present his evidence/statement fully.

He is self employed, not entitled to Legal Aid and has no money to pay for a solicitor, so has to represent himself

Was this a Magistrates court conviction?
