Gates says that to set up a big screen outside court is expensive but they will only consider cases that draws a lot of public interest.
“Well its expensive therefore we have to be careful with resources but for these cases after the elections, I think people want to know, what the case is about and what are the issues and the evidence.”
He says setting up a screen outside court is a solution to accommodate people accessing their right to see justice.
