Bail Supervision – Formal Warning

You failed to attend your bail supervision appointment on DATE and have not contacted this office to explain your absence. This letter now confirms that you have been issued with a Formal Warning. If you can provide proof of an acceptable reason for not attending, the warning may be withdrawn.

You must attend this office on the DATE at TIME to discuss this. All evidence must be produced within seven days of the absence, or the warning will stay in place.

I must remind you that it is a requirement of your Bail Supervision that you comply with all the conditions of bail set out by the court on the DATE. Failure to adhere to these bail conditions will result in the matter being sent to Police Scotland under a contravention of the Criminal Procedure (Scotland) Act 1995 S27(1)(b).

Yours sincerely
