    The case will be heard by SANZAR Duty Judicial Officer (DJO) Nicholas Davidson QC.

    The statement adds that: "all SANZAR disciplinary matters are in the first instance referred to a Duty Judicial Officer hearing to provide the option of expediting the judicial process.

    "For a matter to be dispensed with at this hearing, the person appearing must plead guilty and accept the penalty offered by the DJO."
