In a case of forgotten toner, it appears that French court has allowed a murder suspect to go free because the hearing did not take place within a 20 day time period.
The cause? a fax machine that had run out of toner – it was so old a replacement couldn’t be found.
The fax had been sent but it was never seen by the receiving party.
