Compensation - Criminal injuries - Procedure before appeal panel - Claimant not attending hearing of compensation appeal himself but represented by parents - Whether claimant 'absent' - Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme 1996, para 79.
An appellant before the Criminal Injuries Compensation Appeal Panel did not qualify for a re-hearing of his appeal under para79 of the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme 1996 when, although he himself was absent, representatives attended before the panel on his behalf, since, on its true construction, the word 'appellant' in that provision extended to an appellant's representatives.
