Crown law have emailed me and provided their contact person who will be championing their defence.
Next week on Tuesday we have the judicial conference. Prior to that conference we have to prepare a memorandum covering various procedural issues; one of which if the issue of interlocutory applications — if any. An interlocutory application is an application for a Court order peripheral to the substantive issue.
I have asked Crown Law to secure and undertaking from Police that they will set-aside their policy until the Court has finally dealt with the matter.
This is my email to crown law:
"Thankyou for your email Austin
I am preparing a memorandum for the High Court conference. At this stage I seek from you a formal undertaking from crown law that the Police will not further advertise, implement or enforce their reinterpretation of the Arms Act definition of MSSA, and that the Police policy is forthwith set-aside and is of no effect until this matter is finally determined by the High Court. In this way we will avoid the need to apply for an interim injunction.
I would draw to your attention that Police are currently criminalising thousands of responsible law-abiding citizens and interfering with the commercial interests of hundreds of legitimate arms dealers and manufacturers. The mood of those presently affected is such that I cannot guarantee that collectively we will not sue for exemplary damages if the Police are uncooperative.
Would you be good enough to let me know as soon as possible. If I do not hear from you prior to filing memoranda, I will assume that such an undertaking is not forthcoming and an interim injunction, with its associated costs, will have to be considered.
