Thank you, Mr President. Mr Griffiths left me a telephone message this morning about 8.04 a.m. After listening to it, I called him. The substance of the message was that he was ill in the sense that he had a bad case of sore throat. I rang him, we did speak, and he did not sound well. He sounded as if his voice would not make it through the day, so to speak. And I told him that on his behalf and on behalf of our team I will be asking for a continuance - rather, an adjournment, if you will, for one day, from today until tomorrow.
I understand that he communicated the same information to the Court Manager and I think the Prosecution is also aware of this. So, respectfully, I request a continuance of one day until tomorrow.
