Scottish Law Questions? Ask a Scots Lawyer
You may need to change your lawyer and get one with experience of tax cases. What exactly have you been charged with and going back to what dates?
There could be undue delay. Your lawyer would have to raise that issue and it would be debated as to whether the the had been prejudice and you couldn't get a fair trial. As regards ***** ***** of the Act they charge you under, you can't insist that they charge one section and not another. Your lawyer's function is to answer the charge and if the charge is irrelevant of wrong, the court will dismiss the charge. It sounds to me like you should call the Law Society of Scotland and get a recommendation for a lawyer experienced in tax fraud prosecutions and instruct him or her before it is too late to make such challenges. Whilst most things can be dealt with at the trial, certain debate points may have to be dealt with at the earlier stages of a case so you don't want to delay in securing proper representation.
