Pre Issued Settlement – The Case of D (22 June 2018)

This case concerns a defendant D, who had been remanded in prison custody for 4½ months without lawful authority. D was arrested for breaching a non-molestation order, imposed by a County Court. He was taken to the Court in the custody of police officers, and appeared before a district judge without having had access to legal advice. The judge subjected him to questioning and remanded him to prison, directing that either the police or prison officers brought D back to Court in seven days to conclude his case.
