Poor performance by Capita
I recently appeared in a case at Southwark Crown Court where the co-defendant required a Russian interpreter. An interpreter failed to attend on 3 occasions. For your records the court reference number is T20147367 and the defendant requiring an interpreter was called Klassens. There was no interpreter at the preliminary hearing on 8/8/14, the case was adjourned when he would have pleaded guilty as he did so on the next occasion. An interpreter did not attend for a sentence hearing on 16/12/14 forcing the hearing to be adjourned. No interpreter then attended on 18/12/14 though we waited until the afternoon for a new booking to be created and it was eventually effective.
