  1. (i) intentionally meets B; or
  2. (ii) travels with the intention of meeting B in any part of the world;
  3. (iii) at the time, he intends to do anything to or in respect of B, during or after the meeting and in any part of the world, which if done will involve the commission by A of a relevant offence;
  4. (iv) B is under 16:
  5. (v) A does not reasonably believe that B is 16 or over.
