Media Rules for Operation Belcarra

Sign-in Procedures

Members of the media are welcome to attend the public hearing. Security procedures apply at the CCC’s premises. Anyone attending the hearing will be required to adhere to these.

When you arrive at the CCC on Level 2, identify yourself to reception staff as a member of the media. Following sign-in, you will be accompanied to the designated seating area for the media in the public gallery.

Interviews

Media are not permitted to conduct interviews with witnesses, counsel assisting, CCC staff or members of the public inside the CCC building.

Any interviews with witnesses or members of the public must be conducted outside of the CCC building. Please note if you leave the CCC building you will be required to pass through security again if you are returning to the public hearing.

CCC Chairperson Alan MacSporran QC will not be available for interviews during the hearing.

Inside the Public Gallery

  • The public hearing will be live-streamed. Therefore, we request silent mode to be activated on all personal devices whilst inside the hearing room. This includes phones, tablets and computers. If your device does not have a silent mode then please turn it off.
  • Media are not permitted to talk with witnesses inside the hearing room or public gallery.
  • The CCC cannot facilitate interviews with witnesses.
  • Please ensure that you remain within the designated media section at all times and ensure that your accreditation is visible.

Social Media / Live online reporting

Media are allowed to file online stories throughout the hearing and the use of social media including live updating via Twitter and Facebook is allowed.

However, please be aware there may be times during the hearing when the presiding officer issues a non-publication order. Media are responsible for their own comments and responsible for adhering to any non-publication orders.

The CCC will be using the hashtag #OpBelcarra throughout the hearing.

Photography

No photography will be allowed during the public hearing.

Video / Camera Pooling

Due to limitations on space, no filming inside the hearing or public gallery will be available for the media. The hearing will be streamed in high-definition.

The CCC is also liaising with TV networks to provide a feed of the live-stream for their use.

Assistance or Queries

If media have any queries about the public forum, please contact the CCC Corporate Communications team at [email protected] or 07 3360 6000.
