Brief outline from the FOC report:
When the matter was called on for hearing this morning, Mr Noel Evans indicated that he wished to appear for the respondent, which is referred to in the application as ‘One Nation as publisher of The Nation’. There is some doubt in my mind as to the standing of One Nation. Mr Evans indicated that One Nation is an unincorporated association and
that it does not have any legal assistance, either as a consequence of any legislation relating to elections or otherwise. In those circumstances, the applicant sought leave to amend the application by the substitution of Mr Noel Evans as the respondent Mr Evans accepts that he is the publisher of the journal which is the subject of the complaint.
