Why hide evidence from the accused?

I also find this ruling very bizarre and incomprehensible. I cannot understand why this has to go to the Supreme for interpretation. It's the norm in all courts that all documents to be relied on by both parties in the trial are exchanged 7 days before the hearing. Failure to do so especially from the prosecution side could result in miscarriage of justice or mistrial. This is common sense natural justice and fair trial so I don't understand why a High Court judge will send this to the Supreme Court. Waste of time
