We gave the lawyer £600 and he only told us which prison my brother is held his prison number and that he is charged for threat but if we want to meet him before his hearing we need to pay more money and if we want the barrister to fight his case in court which the hearing is on 11th december 2019 then the cost is £1500 which we don't have.

Like I said, I was underground. Ok, you need to email customer services for a refund on the call. But I'm not sure what your question is?
