It’s now 3.15PM and for at least one hour Ms McNaughton has been reading out text messages of a surprisingly familiar nature between Mr Alex and Mr Greenfield.
One text message from George Alex to Mace Hourari “put $5K in toilet”.
Mr Greenfield now claims that he would go to the Alex toilet to collect documents from the drawer – a text from Alex to Greenfield says, “toilet, first drawer”.
Another text from George Alex to a 3rd man says, “put $2500 in drawer under sink”.
Somehow Mr Greenfield kept a straight face when he answered that he would arrange to pick up business papers from Mr Alex’s home – in the drawer under the sink in the toilet.
Ms McNaughton, “Is it your honest answer that you have never seen cash in the toilet, is it your honest answer that documents were left for you in the toilet drawer?”
Greenfield says, “Yes, it’s a serious answer.”
