Top Gear And Jeremy Clarkson's Argentina Case To Be Reopened

The incident in October of last year led to Clarkson and his co-hosts James May and Richard Hammond to be chased out of the country by a violent mob.

The specific charge is of "falsifying, altering or suppressing the number of a legally registered object".

A previous investigation by Judge Maria Cristina Barrionuevo found the team had not acted in bad faith.

But an appeals court has ordered the case be reopened after pressure from a Falklands war veteran, Osvaldo Hillar.

He said: "We believe that the Top Gear crew changed the plates in the full knowledge that what they were doing was illegal."

The three presenters may have to give evidence in Argentina.

The episode in question drew huge viewing numbers but the fate of 'Top Gear' rapidly declined soon after when Jeremy Clarkson was fired for punching a producer.

Hammond and May quickly announced they wouldn't be returning to the show on the BBC but the three have found a new home on Amazon Prime in a yet-to-be titled show.
