Sentencing of driver responsible for man's death postponed as translator fails to attend hearing
The sentencing of a driver responsible for the death of a motorcyclist has been postponed - because a translator arranged for him did not show up to court.
On November 28, Liow pleaded guilty to causing death by dangerous driving at Norwich Crown Court and was due to learn his fate in the same court on Thursday.
However, after an "administrative error" on the part of the company responsible for providing the court with an interpreter in Mandarin meant one was not provided, the hearing was postponed.
"The translation service has admitted it made an administrative error and as a result no interpreter has shown up today," Liow's solicitor told the court.
