Solicitor Sends 'Useless' Interpreter Home As FWA Mess Continues
Even more public funds have been wasted today as Capita's failure to supply an interpreter resulted in three adjournments in Boston Magistrates' Court. John Storer, a local solicitor, wrote on his Twitter page:
'Boston Magistrates Court comes to standstill after solicitor (no prizes for guessing who) tells justices that Lithuanian interpreter useless.'
'I actually said he was incompetent, which he was. No real grasp of English language. Did not know what the word "wrist" meant.'
'Thought a Probation Officer was a person who took mouth swabs! Told him he should not be doing job.'
'He wasn't employed by ALS directly - came from an agency that they had sub-contracted to. Court have had to adjourn 3 cases. It transpires that he had driven up from London straight after coming off a 12 hour night shift.'
