Amy Winehouse wants to postpone court hearing in Norway: report

Amy Winehouse wants to postpone court hearing in Norway: report

Amy Winehouse's lawyer has asked a district court in Norway to postpone a hearing for the British singer-songwriter, who is accused of drug possession, local media reported Wednesday.
Winehouse and her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, were arrested in the western city of Bergen in October last year and held overnight on charges of possessing 7 grams (1/4-ounce) of marijuana.
They were released the next morning after paying fines of euro500 (US$715) each, and they continued a European tour.
However, the singer later appealed the fine, claiming Norwegian police made mistakes in the case.
The appeal was scheduled for a court hearing this Friday, but Winehouse's lawyer Ole Kvelstad now claims his client hasn't received the letter detailing the date of the hearing, news agency NTB reported.
However, Bergen Police Attorney Rudolf Christoffersen told the news agency that Winehouse knows when the hearing is, even if the letter hasn't arrived.
