LITTLEPORT man Colin Green has failed in a bid to persuade magistrates to reopen a case dating back more than four years.
Back in December 2004, 52-year-old Green was fined �330 for having no road tax on a Mazda vehicle, and was ordered to pay �151.25 back duty and �45 costs.
Green, of City Road, has not paid the outstanding fine, Ely magistrates were told, and back in 2006 he wrote to the court saying someone else had been using the vehicle on the date of the alleged offence.
Solicitor Michael Judkins told the court that Green had sold the car in question about a year before the offence was committed.
