Court fines system a shambles.

Quote:
Almost £2bn is owed in unpaid court fines and confiscation orders, a report by a committee of MPs has revealed....

MPs said it was unacceptable that "timely and accurate" financial accounts cannot be produced by the MoJ....

Not enough fines were collected and 60% of money pursued via confiscation orders may never be recovered....

I wish I could be surprised about this.....

Re: Court fines system a shambles.

Re: Court fines system a shambles.

Trouble is I bet it isn't just the little toe rags who are getting away with it. I wonder how many major confiscation orders have failed for one reason of another.
