London, UK (Londra Gazette): A judge described the Ministry of Justice’s new interpretation system as “descending into the farcical” after a Turkish interpreter failed to turn up at the hearing of a woman accused of arson. Judge Simon Carr made the remark at a preliminary hearing for Sevcan Davaz at Wood Green Crown Court yesterday, after an interpreter booked to translate for her did not appear. He instructed the interpreter and a representative from Applied Language Services, which supplies translation services at Wood Green Crown Court, to appear before him at 9.30am this morning to explain the absence.
