So transported from the Casino in an Audi and to the ALP in an Aldi
Replying to @DominicVillaSC @smh
This brings us full circle - a number of witnesses have said they were confused about whether they heard “Audi” or “Aldi” bag.
 
‘Suspicious’ $100,000 cash withdrawal at Star casino days before NSW Labor donation, #ICAC hears. The final day of evidence in ICAC’s inquiry into the source of a $100k donation to the party delivered some serious fireworks smh.com.au/national/nsw/s… via @smh
'Suspicious' withdrawal at Star casino before $100,000 donation: ICAC

"That's a withdrawal of cash," Kevin Houlihan says when shown records of $100,000 withdrawal on April 3, 2015, from junket set up by Huang Xiangmo's employee. 6 days later, NSW Labor banks $100,000 cash donation that arrived at head office. Again, Huang says he is not the source.
Replying to @MWhitbourn
The Star's surveillance department recorded that Huang Xiangmo's employee "wanted to withdraw $100K cash to his account" on April 3, 2015, and this was "considered suspicious" because of the large amount of cash. The employee left in a white Audi.

#ICAC has records showing a business manager at Huang Xiangmo's Yuhu Group set up a junket program with Star Casino starting on April 3, 2015, funded by Huang Xiangmo to the tune of $5m. On April 9 that year NSW Labor banked a $100,00 cash donation. Huang denies he is the source.

Houlian is group investigations officer at The Star casino in Sydney and he's been asked to review its gaming records associated with Huang Xiangmo and others in April 2015, around the time an alleged $100,000 cash donation was given to ALP's head office #ICAC

Ok, I think we should be getting to this mystery witness in a minute. Former NSW Labor MP Ernest Wong has left the witness box #ICAC
 
No sign yet of the mystery witness at #ICAC. Former NSW Labor MP Ernest Wong is being cross-examined by the lawyers for other witnesses.

I just saw him conferring with a client.

This is a lovely shot. I think someone was in the Court of Appeal this morning.
 
 
An #ICAC mystery witness! Should we order popcorn? @MWhitbourn

They are said to be "significant" so I am perched on edge of me plastic seat.

The #buyregional and #buyfromthebush Christmas shopping campaigns have taken off. These are pictures of seasonal hampers being packed in the NSW town of Uralla. Locals say the campaigns have given the drought-affected community a huge boost. @BreakfastNews
 
#ICAC has just heard a mystery witness will be called this afternoon in its inquiry into NSW Labor donations - they've never been called before, counsel assisting the commission says, but may shed light on "whether Mr [Ernest] Wong's evidence should be accepted".
 
Counsel assisting #ICAC, Scott Robertson, to former NSW Labor MP Ernest Wong: "You can't answer the question because you're making it up."
Wong: "Not at all! I can't even remember who I met last night."
 
#ICAC counsel assisting, Scott Robertson, tells a reluctant witness: "Which story do you want to stick to? Can't be both! Pick one please."
Witness: (Pause) "Ok, so, I go to see him for his health..."

"You have no other function but to answer the questions. Do you understand?" #ICAC Commissioner Peter Hall, QC, tells a witness. Harsh but fair.
 
"I don't want to explain further," a witness at #ICAC says when asked if he's given inconsistent evidence. That settles that, then. Shall we all pack up and go home?

This is the correct opinion. She became real spoilt and actually didn’t deserve adult Jess anyway! It’s actually why I don’t rewatch the latter seasons very often because it’s too disappointing.
Replying to @ElizaJBarr
Yes. It became a terrible show with a spoilt and vacuous main character!
 
This tweet is getting attention again and I just want to let you know I still stand by this absolutely correct opinion.
Replying to @ElizaJBarr
Rory ended up being worse than all of them, really. I so enjoyed her nerdy school girl years but she was not a sympathetic character in subsequent seasons.

If you've never had the joy of perusing Google reviews of Sydney's courts, this month LSJ has taken the liberty of compiling our favourites for you. I particularly enjoy the summation of Lidcombe Coroners Court (4.2 stars):

"Morbid, but the facilities are cutting-edge."
 
This is actually deeply romantic and heartwarming? thecut.com/2019/12/my-wif…
Replying to @Jo_Tovey
It’s also hilarious. Gateway enemies. So good.

What's the reason for the committee not reporting until November?
Unclear but there is another family law inquiry on foot so it may be tied to that.
 
 
The Coalition’s plan to merge the Family Court with the lower-level Federal Circuit Court won’t go ahead for at least a year after the Senate voted the send the bill to a committee that will not report until November 2020 #auspol #auslaw

Emma Stone is so good. Very sassy and wonderful.
 
Just had a great chat with someone in the Supreme Court lift about my dress (no really) and where one could buy it (probably eBay) and look, this is MUCH better than eavesdropping on lawyers' holiday plans for Dec/Jan. Mean Girls was also referenced by my interlocutor. Five stars
