SENTENCING ACT 1991 - SECT 69FB

Order of court in absence of fine defaulter—Fines Reform Act 2014

    (1)     If a person who was arrested on an enforcement warrant issued under the Fines Reform Act 2014 and released on bail (either in accordance with the endorsement on the enforcement warrant or under section 10 of the Bail Act 1977 ) fails to attend before the court in accordance with that bail, the court may proceed to hear and determine the matter under section 69FA 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 an enforcement warrant endorsed with a power of arrest that was issued under the Fines Reform Act 2014 against the offender has not been executed within a reasonable period after it was issued or no enforcement warrant was issued against an offender under the Fines Reform Act 2014 , the court may proceed to hear and determine the matter under section 69FA 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.

S. 69G inserted by No. 32/2013 s. 47 (as amended by No. 77/2013 ss 45, 48).
