4.1 Media identification

Before court begins, please provide suitable identification to the court registrar which shows that you are a member of the media (as that term is defined in section 198(2) of the Criminal Procedure Act 2011). Suitable identification is an identification card or letter from your organisation along with your personal identification (for example, a driver’s licence). Please do not be offended at these requirements. They are designed to ensure that only members of the media can benefit from the use of the press bench.

At all times ensure you do not interfere with the due administration of justice and do nothing that may prejudice a fair trial. These actions amount to contempt of court.
