There is case law holding that a debtor in military service may appear at a meeting of creditors
by telephone, provided that the debtor obtains permission from the court in advance, via a noticed motion. See e.g., In re Martin
, 12 B.R. 319 (SD AL Bankr. 6/23/1981).
So ,the answer here is "yes," to a telephone hearing, but as for written interrogatories, that would also need court permission, and I suspect it may be denied, because creditors would be unable to examine the debtor, based upon what the debtor discloses at the 341 hearing.
Hope this helps. NOTICE
