Q193: Can I have an interpreter if I have to go to Court?

Yes. If you are a witness, you can have an interpreter. If you received a citation, it should contain a section about interpreters and other special requirements.

If you are the accused and you had an interpreter during your police interview then the police will inform the court that you need an interpreter. If you did not have an interpreter during the police interview but feel that you need one for the court appearances then inform your solicitor who will in turn notify the court.
