    Q197: What will happen if I don't go to court to give evidence as a witness?

    If you are a witness and you do not go to court, a number of things could happen.

    Firstly, the case could be thrown out of court. Secondly, the court could adjourn the proceedings so that a witness summons can be served on you. If you then fail to attend the next hearing after a witness summons has been served then you could be arrested.

    If you have any fears or concerns about attending court it would be best if you contacted your local Witness Care Unit.
