The Registrar, Bangari, had suggested that sufficient security has already been put in place and that only the summoned members of the political parties and the general public would be permitted to enter the courtroom. This is to prevent congestion and possible security breaches.

Bangari finished his signed statement by asking the interested members of the public to watch the court proceedings from their respective television sets.
