Interstate warrants for unpaid fines

Where a fine imposed in another State has not been fully paid, leading to a warrant for commitment being issued, a warrant of apprehension may be issued by the registrar of the interstate court and forwarded to South Australia for execution [ see further Service and Execution of Process Act 1992 (Cth)]. If the person pays the fine in full after the warrant has been issued but before it has been executed, the warrant may be withdrawn.
