“That a Certified True Copy of the report(s) prepared by the experts shall be made available to our client prior to his appearance,” the letter read.
“That our client has undertaken to surrender to the experts the device used in capturing all the events in the video clips submitted and others yet to be submitted for discreet analysis and scrutiny.

“That all the proposed questions to be asked by the panel in the anticipated session shall not be more than 10 and shall be forwarded to our client in advance.

“That the sitting be restricted to limited persons and that our client should be allowed to wear a mask, bear a fictitious name and receive protection from authorities for himself, family and business.”
