    You will become the defendant in the following contempt of court trial with time in the pokey afterwards!

    If there's a good reason for not attending you should let them know.

    got a citation a few weeks ago to go to weege High Court tomorrow for an 'incident' in Duddingston that happened last year(night before SC Cup Final). Was told non-appearance would result in warrant being issued.

    Delighted to get call last week from Justiciary dept saying not needed at this stage as trial will go on for some time and I wont be needed until later. Will get call nearer time to appear.

    My mate used to have an expression she would be an ugly man. But that thing would be an ugly hippo.

    Still can't understand why that case is being heard in Glasgow. Unless there's a good reason I can't see it just seems to be another instance of the slow erosion of Edinburgh's capital status by the Scottish Government.

    I think it's easier for the jury to have little links or knowledge of the case or the people or area involved, especially if there was media coverage.

    And that would be wrong - a quick google says that the crime should be tried in the nearest court.

    However, there seems to be a desire - particularly from prisoners who find it less emotive - to be tried outwith the local areas.

    It's the high court on tour. The high court can be held in any sheriffdom in Scotland, as long as all the players are there. It's more to do with availability of locations these days rather than the 'taking the circuit on tour to show the people of the land they are always within the reach of the senior justiciary' days of old.
    Game's rigged, why bother?

    @polbeth , you could always use one of the hundreds of video links I've installed in the courts all over Scotland 😉
    When a thing ceases to be a subject of controversy, it ceases to be a subject of interest.

    As a general rule, I'd advise not to reference drug usage as a plus point.

    Tayside nailed it.

    It's up to you to remember what was said in your statement. Not like you've got a wee black notebook to sit and compare with other witnesses before giving evidence.
