The Chairman granted anonymity to 3 core participants, whose names appear in the list as AAA, CCC and DDD, and refused the applications of the other 4. Of the 16 who only asked for their names to be withheld from the list, the Chairman rejected 12 of their applications and deferred 4 pending the receipt of further information.
