The Court refused to withdraw the arrest warrant for Julian Assange that had been issued pursuant to the Bail Act 1976, s 7. In doing so, it emphasised that “many authorities underline the importance of a defendant attending court when bailed to do so and they describe the way that the administration of justice can be undermined by defendants who fail to attend”.
Helen Law, Mark Summers QC and Aaron Watkins were involved in this case.
