I can’t see there being any requirement for the Crown to resend disclosure directly to you. Your father was acting as your representative and accepted the disclosure when provided. Regardless of your initial request, the Courts will likely consider disclosure being provided to your representative as sufficient.

Definitely not. If he's not good enough to pick up the disclosure, he's not good enough to represent you. Therefore, your trial should have continued as usual and you should have been found guilty for no showing. I suggest you prepare to defend yourself and not rely on this tactic for your next trial.

I agree with the others the court will consider giving the disclosure to your representative sufficient. Have your Father in Law send it down to you and lets see what is in it. Once you know what evidence they have, you can start building a proper defense.
