I need help regarding the Case for Copyright ACT 63B, My brother was accussed for it. He was out on bail within 20 days. He is going regularly on dates from last 2 years in mumbai court. But due to his Career life he is not able to move every 2-3 months to mumbai and go on date. Is it possible that if i hire advocate he can go instead of him ?
On a petition before the concerned magistrate court, that your brother may not be able to attend the court for each and every hearing along with some substantial evidence supporting his claim, the magistrate may dispense with personal attendance of accused if he sees reasons so to do and permit him to appear by his pleader. But the Magistrate inquiring into or trying the case may, in his discretion at any stage of the proceedings, direct the personal attendance of the accused and if necessary enforce such attendance in the manner provided by law.
