Children’s Hearings (Scotland) Act 2011

Section 112 – Child’s duty to attend review hearing unless excused

166.This section requires that, where an application for the review of the grounds determination is made in relation to a person who is still a child, that child must attend the review hearing. The child must attend the review hearing unless they are excused by the sheriff. If excused the child may still attend the hearing. This places the child under the same obligations and provides the same right to attend as in relation to the original hearing to establish the grounds. Subsection (4) provides that the sheriff may grant a warrant to secure the child’s attendance at the hearing if the sheriff considers that there is reason to believe that the child would not attend voluntarily.
