Henry Skudra Quashes Default Period Of Imprisonment In The High Court

Henry Skudra quashes default period of imprisonment in the High Court

  • News

Henry Skudra acted for a man who failed to make full payment of his confiscation order, and the 3-month time limit for payment had long passed.

The Prosecution applied for a warrant of commitment to send the man to prison for non-payment. The Magistrates’ Court activated the default sentence, sending him to prison for a considerable period of time.

This was successfully challenged in the High Court – appealing by way of case stated.

Following legal submissions, the warrant of commitment was quashed and the man was released from prison. Henry also secured a costs order in the man’s favour.
