Order of court in absence of offender

S. 69F(1) amended by No. 26/2017 s. 25.

    (1)     If a person who was arrested on a warrant under Division 4 and released on bail (either in accordance with the endorsement on the warrant or in accordance with the Bail Act 1977 ) fails to attend before the court in accordance with his or her bail, the court may proceed to hear and determine the matter under section 69E in the offender's absence and make any order under section 69G or 69H, as applicable, without prejudice to any right of action arising out of the breach of the bail undertaking.

    (2)     If a warrant to arrest issued under Division 4 against an offender has not been executed within a reasonable period after it was issued or no warrant to arrest was issued against an offender under Division 4, the court may proceed to hear and determine the matter under section 69E in the offender's absence and make any order under section 69G or 69H, as applicable, if it is satisfied that the warrant has not been executed or was not issued only because the offender is not in Victoria.
