Re: Crown Court Appeal Maidstone

I know its not cheap (luckily enough my case was heard in Chelmsford, train ticket was about £25 return I think, at the end of the day they costed me about £500) but worth it. its shame you hav to get solicitor as it will be a lot cheaper otherwise. just think about your next trip and savings you will have

Re: Crown Court Appeal Maidstone

Well done!

It's a shame that justice has a price. Nevertheless you've cleared your name and it would have cost more if you had not have fought the case. If you have any court papers carry them with you when travelling.

Don't really won't to go traveling again it's really put me off.

Re: Crown Court Appeal Maidstone

Why do you think that because a cert 144 was issued you can't claim legal fees...all a cert 144 stops is you making a claim against the officer/BF for wrongful seizure of your goods..

Re: Crown Court Appeal Maidstone

The judge specifically said I cannot claim my legal fees back, if anyone knows any different then I'm all ears.

Re: Crown Court Appeal Maidstone

Well done on winning, every win is a bonus I'm up next Thursday at Dover Magistrates. Don't expect to win that but I do expect to win on appeal.

Re: Crown Court Appeal Maidstone

Something about bf were acting within their remit so I couldn't claim costs against them.

Re: Crown Court Appeal Maidstone

Hi guys it's been a while but I've been away for 6 weeks to Malta, bought a few packs back and no bf at Manchester, but came home to a letter from bf saying they have destroyed my goods and they they will pay me compensation for the value of goods seized, obviously at Belgian prices ;-)

Anyway great to be back, do you recon I can ask for more at uk prices and I'll also be checking when said goods were destroyed,
