I can answer you here.
Yes I understand that, but you will need to actually answer the question I ask you so that I can advise correctly.
When was the original documents sent to you, when did you receive them, when were you out of the country and how were they misplaced?
Unfortunately, without the additional information requested in my first/previous response, I will not be able to give you detailed advice to your question, but I will be able to give you a general answer, which I hope will be of assistance. If you are able to supply the additional information later, please do so and I will then come back to you with a more detailed answer.
As you have failed to reply in the required time as your are legally meant to do, then you are guilty of this offence.
However, if you have never received any previous paperwork, then you should answer this document as not guilty a d explain that you have received nothing before.
You need to ask to be allowed to make a “statutory declaration to the court”
The court will then arrange a date at court for you to make that statutory declaration and then this offence should be removed.
I hope this helps.
Please go ahead
Thank you for that additional information, that will be helpfull in allowing me to advise you today.As the matte4vhas already been dealt with by the court, there is nothing else the police can do at this time.
Ypu will need to wait to receive the document from the court with the fine. Then once you have received that, you can then contact the court issuing the fine and explain what has happened. They will then arrange a time and date to go to court to make the statutory declaration. Once that is done, the conviction will be cancelled and the original offence can be reopened.
Normally it will be an in court hearing to make the statutory declaration. That declaration is your evidence.
You do not plead anything in a statutory declaration. You are declaring that you never received the paperwork at the right time.
Then the case can be reopened as new. Then once the new papers are served, you can enter a plea etc.
