Mr. Cameron, I've appeared in court. I'm a civil lawyer, so I'm not an expert in the criminal law, but perhaps counsel shall provide an affidavit in that case. I've seen lawyers receive orders, forget to put in that affidavit. It happens, but it's in the legislation that says you shall provide that affidavit. It's a minor matter, but it goes ahead, no questions asked. Those mistakes happened. The judge didn't ask for it, neither side objected, and it went through. These things happen. They happen in other areas of the court, despite the fact it says “shall”.
