Expert:  Jo C. replied 10 months ago.

Ok. Which condition did you breach?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
i have not breached any conditions i was only asking if my bail conditions are the same in England John
Expert:  Jo C. replied 10 months ago.

Actions that take place in England are not within the jurisdiction of Scotland.

However, if any part of the action takes place in Scotland then it would be caught. Phone calls are a good example. If you phoned from England to a person in Scotland the action would be within the Scots' jurisdiction.

Can I clarify anything for you?

If you met her by default then that wouldn't be a breach.
