Guy Earle's Lawyer Boycotts Hearing
First news of the morning: It turns out the tribunal hasn't ruled on jurisdiction yet, but intends to hold the hearing now and rule on jurisdiction later.
James Millar to hearing chair Murray Geiger-Adams:
"This procedure is against the rule of law...I can't be part of an illegal proceeding...How can you proceed when jurisdiction is not settled?...I have to leave the proceedings...I do so very regretfully...It's too bad you wouldn't listen."
He then walked out and addressed a media scrum waiting in the hallway. Video soon.
