The case was listed at Norwich Crown Court on Wednesday (July 22) but the defendant did not attend.

The case has been listed by Judge Maureen Bacon on August 4 when Tanti, of Ely Way, Thetford, must attend in order that he can enter pleas ahead of a possible trial.

A trial is currently in the warned list for August 10.

It was not clear why Tanti was not in court but Judge Bacon said the defendant “must attend” the hearing due to take place next month.
