04-11-2010 10:52Maurice insists in being arrested only for the purpose of going to court and meeting the judge who convicted him in his absence, despite his request for adjournment. But the Court is far from co-operating. Here's his account with questions to the Court.
The NHS has asked their solicitors about the release of the medical records. The Judge and the Police's solicitors are meeting in Maurice's absence.
