What is a postal requisition?
A postal requisition is effectively a summons received by post, which requires a person to attend court at a given date and time in order to answer a charge, or a number of charges.
Postal requisitions most often follow when someone has been interviewed at a police station on a voluntary basis, although they can occasionally be issued as a result of arrest, detainment, interview and an RUI release.
What should I do if I receive a postal requisition?
A postal requisition is essentially the same as a charge – the only difference being that it is delivered by post instead of verbally by an officer – and it should be treated as such.
Should you be in receipt of a postal requisition, you should contact a solicitor straight away.
