Suppose I say that the egg is not in the safe? Could a Court order me to
open the safe? I'm pretty sure it could order some baillifs or whoever
to open it, but order me?
Suppose you can't prove, beyond reasonable doubt, that some evidence
against me is in the safe until you see it - and the only way to see it
is if I open the safe?
