Hi. Thank you for your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will try to help with this.
I'm not sure I can really give you good news.
Are you on a summons or on bail?
Hi Jo, we had left the UK the cps decided to charge us with assault.
That doesn't make a lot of sense.
Unless you are summonsed for the offence?
If you were on bail then you should have been bailed back to a police station to be charged?
june last year , we were involved in a minore skirmish , in a restaurant ,where i was accused of assault, there were camers in this busy restaurant apparently the police say they were not clear , so it is the word of the so called victim and his friends.
We were issued with a warrant with bail.
because we were out the country , we are in the Gold Coast Australia where we live , they want us my wife an I to come back to the UK to appear at court
I am 65 my wife 63 ,its a joint accusation against a person that borrowed 95,000 pounds from us and 6 months later he went bankrupt we lost our money , and he gloats about it. he really should have been charged for fraud
we want to know , do we physically have to attend court ?
we were summoned around 10 times to appear in court , most of them all were posted to our old house in the uk we sold so we never even realised about these summonses , so the courts issued a warrant..
if you google my name hector mcfarlane
Jo, are you still there ?
But I have had no answer .
Im sorry. I lost my internet connection. What I need to know is were you given bail to go to court and didnt attend?
No , only summonses sent to a house we no longer live in, only recently we alsked a solicitor to recieve a summons on our behalf, he went to court set up a court date for 17thMarch 2014 ,and pleaded not guilty on our behalf.
This solicitor is nealy impossible to get a hold of , bearing in mins we are 10 hours in front here , when we call late at night here it is morning and he is in court ,when we call early morning the office is closed.
we have written and asked him ,we only get his secretary she cannot answer our questions.
we never personally recieven any summonses / but apparently about 10 summonses were issued for us to appear in court that we did not attend, most of the time we live in a small sea side town in Thailand
the question we are asking you legally ,
What is the legal position on us asking our solicitor / council to attend court on our behalf , will the court accept that ?s vllawyer usawg
what is the legal position on us not appearing and having our legal representative appear for us.
Jo, I have been on this since 8.17 a.m. my time it is now
9.00 a.m , that is 43 minutes waiting for a answer from you.
Jo ,i dont understand why you are offline here but seem to be online for new questions , can I assume now after trying to get a answer on this for 53 minutes you dont have a answer.
