[1] THE COURT:  The appellant appealed unsuccessfully against the decision of a trial division judge to refuse his application for the transcripts of his co-accused’s evidence in the Australian Crime Commission.  The Australian Crime Commission seeks the costs of the appeal.  The appellant, having been given the opportunity to make submissions, has not done so; unsurprisingly because there is no obvious reason that the costs should not follow the event.

[2] The appellant should pay the first respondent’s costs of and incidental to the appeal to be assessed on the standard basis.
