Good morning, Madam President. Good morning, your Honours. Good morning, counsel opposite. Appearing for the Defence this morning are myself, Morris Anyah. I am joined by Mr Simon Chapman.
Madam President, Mr Taylor is absent, as your Honours will have noticed, and he is absent for the same reasons he typically is absent on Tuesday mornings. I am instructed that I have his consent to proceed in his absence, and we anticipate that by 11.30 he should be present in court.
