  1. The implications of filing a stat dec are pretty clear. I can't lie, it's one thing to get a railway byelaw offence, it's another one to lie to a judge. The incident that happened 3 years ago was a negligence on my side, but I don't think the way I have tried to approach things with the toc were negligent at all. When I first received a letter about this (so 3 years afterwards) I paid the fine on the spot. It is only afterwards that I was told the consequences (not being a UK national, I didn't know the extent of the UK legislation) that I decided to keep my good name, as I would have don
  2. Thanks for the input guys, but if I'm being asked that question I'll answer truthfully, but it'll be the last of my worries. Because that'll mean that my efforts to settle out of court will have miserably failed. By the way, the initiating court gave me the phone number to Southern's prosecution, so I will be able to try and talk to them on Monday. Not trying to double read into anything here, but the lady at the court even said after having called the prosecution: fingers crossed you may be able to settle out of court. Maybe just being nice, or maybe suggesting something else? Anyway I
  3. Of course, i perfectly understand that. Anyway I will try my best, and will post back on this thread to let you guys know how it went.
  4. I only went abroad for the weekend I am absolutely certain I gave the right address. I changed 3 times addresses over the course of the past 3 years. I understand the fact that it may be a time-and-resource consuming task for the toc, therefore I am trying to be as proactive as I can. I am not at all denying the fact that I was in the wrong, but I want to make it clear that I never received any correspondence till last week, and would I have had the chance I would have made things right. I want to keep my good name, and for this I am happy to pay for any additional damage that the toc
  5. I did forget about that incident because I was never handed anything on that day, and I gave my full address to the officer. It was 3 years ago, so it did obviously slip out of my mind. I was flying out for a family issue, and I was assuming I would receive something from the toc to make things right and pay for my fare and any other cost. I never did, and I guess it is understandable that someone forgets about something after 3 years of no correspondence whatsoever. I would have paid on the spot to the officer would I have had my wallet on me, which I had left in my office, and only had my
  6. Regarding my last sentence, it may seem arrogant, obviously not the way I wanted to sound it like, but I can't afford to think they won't let me settle out of court otherwise it would destroy my career. So I'm just trying to contact them and see if offering to pay for any cost and additional damages would be sufficient to settle out of court. I only got to know this issue last week, so I had to take all the opportunities that I had in front of me
  7. I never received any summons, therefore why I had to file a stat dec. On the notice of new hearing there is no contact, and southern's customer service says I have to contact the IPFAS.
  8. Good evening, after having filed a stat dec last week regarding an incident that happened 3 years ago, I received a notice of new hearing yesterday. I am trying to get in touch with Southern Railway to try and see if they would maybe agree to an alternative arrangement out of court. Unfortunately I can't seem to find any contact details for them on the letter, nor on their website. Would anyone who faced a similar matter have a contact phone number or email for me to reach out to them?
