James was arrested in August 2022 for the alleged offence of theft. Our Lawyer met him in Court in the course of our Court Duty Soliciting to provide free legal service to indigent Defendants.
James informed our Lawyer that he had been granted bail, but he could not perfect it due to his inability to pay a lawyer for legal services.
In any case, the Prosecutor was absent in court, and there was no communication for his absence.
We applied that the matter is struck out for lack of diligent prosecution, in line with Section 351 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act 2015. Our plea was granted. James has been given a second chance.
