And the other sticks and carrots, the statutory right of reply or correction, paragraph 89.

I think we can understand this best by looking at your proposed drafting at paragraph 90. This will only apply to nonparticipants. Complainant sends a demand for a reply or correction. If that's rejected, the rejections and the reasons for it should be notified to the complainant within seven days. The complainant then has the right to submit the issue of whether the preconditions for the right of reply or correction have been met by -- well, he submits the issue to the court. And then the court may order the news publisher to comply with its duties under this section.

What exactly is the issue the court is adjudicating on?
