Legislation governs access to evidence and/or the right to be present in court. The relevant provisions are:

Application forms

Application forms are required for access to evidence such as files, transcript and tendered exhibits. When publishing such material, media representatives are reminded that it is their legal responsibility to ensure that suppressed material is not published.
