It depends on your local procedure but here as in most authorities if claimant does not attend we prepare a file for legal recommending prosecution. ( dont bend over backwards I think that three invitations are reasonable)

We have sucessfully prosecuted persons before who have not attended for IUC and have one who did not even attend court and after protracted attempts will be sentenced in her abscence! Some LA’s will also get police to arrest but this does depend on your relationship with them also in my opinon it can be a sledgehammer to crack a nut but it is an avenue you may wish to pursue.
Of course the evidence must be of high quality especially so in a LT case.
