I think in terms of notebook, I'm not familiar with a notebook. What actually was recovered was quite a lot of loose A4 pieces of paper, and I describe them in this decision log as research in various forms of completion, and they ranged from simply first names all the way through to first names, surnames, account numbers, addresses, DDNs, telephone numbers, et cetera, et cetera.
So I don't recognise a notebook, because I don't recall actually finding one or seeing one. I do recall lots of loose-leaf A4 pieces of paper, as I've said, with various stages of research on, and I think I refer to that within this decision. I see that through the process of -- I think it's probably from August 9, 10, onwards. I firstly negotiate a group of officers, I think somewhere in the region of 20 or 30 officers, who I negotiate because they're not anti-terrorist branch officers because they're all busy doing Operation Overt and everything else. They're Special Branch officers, they're vetted to the highest level, and it's those officers, I negotiate their overtime, because they're working through weekends when they should be off, and they work through I think for a period of five to seven days to go through all of the documentation, and with that they're briefed by me at the beginning around what I want them to do with that in the first instance, which is to ascertain whether there's anything to undermine or assist the police case with regard to Goodman and Mulcaire, because by then we've charged both Goodman and Mulcaire and my obligations under CPIA kick in.
Is there anything to undermine or assist? Is there any evidence around any other people on these documents? They're given that brief and they work through that for the next five to seven days, and that's what makes this document which is now known and referred to as the Blue Book. That is added to days and weeks later with various bits of information that is supplied by the telephone companies as well.
