i have a friend who is on a gbh charge with intent he has gone to court today because of non compliance

i have checked the court listing it says the following

non -compliance trc

trc def -issues raised non compliance trc pros

do you understand this wording

Expert:  Jo C. replied 2 years ago.
Yes, it is not very good news.
It usually refers to a circumstance where the defence list the matter for non co-operation of the defendant and a consequent application to have bail revoked.
A person is on bail on an implicit condition that he will co-operate with his solicitors. If he stops doing so then they are under an obligation to get it listed to seek the revocation of his bail and a remand in custody.
In fairness, it is fairly rare that it comes to that in practice as usually it is possible to get some instructions sufficient to write a defence case statement at court.
Can I clarify anything for you?

No, this is a question and answer site.
We cannot conduct enquiries on your behalf and anyway don't have access to internal court sites.

what does the non compliance mean would it be the defence or prosecution

Expert:  Jo C. replied 2 years ago.
It depends.
It could be listed at the defence request for non disclosure from the Crown.
