We have received word that Rupert Quaintance will attend Southwark Crown Court this morning at 10:30, bringing forward another attempt to vary his bail conditions.
On 28 February, Rupert pleaded not guilty to five counts of Harassment 4, harassment putting people in fear of violence. The trial was set to begin on 21 August, pending witness availability.
A previous attempt to have his bail conditions varied was unsuccessful.
A second attempt one week later led to the judge permitting Rupert to have a copy of his passport back, to be used for identification purposes. At that hearing, the judge said he would not consider any further variation of the bail conditions until the 21 August trial date is confirmed.
We will continue to follow this story, and will bring updates as we receive them.
As always, while this case is sub judice we would ask our readers to refrain from speculation as to its outcome.
