PEOPLE who try to avoid paying court fines will be targeted in a nationwide month-long campaign launched today (Monday) by Her Majesty's Courts Service.
Operation Crackdown will see court enforcement officers and police involved in a series of blitzes on offenders' homes to chase up payments.
Approved enforcement agencies will also be issued with warrants to confiscate property.
Where necessary, those who refuse to co-operate will be arrested. Court time will be set aside to deal specifically with the dodgers.
