Yes. Madam President, your Honours, you will appreciate that in relation to all of the Defence witnesses, there were pre-trial protective measures put in place by virtue of the Court's order of 29 May 2009 under Rule 69 in which the names of the witnesses, the true identities of the witnesses were replaced by a pseudo number. And in relation to all of the witnesses thus far called, we've given the Prosecution the identities of the witnesses we're calling in accordance with the Court's rules. This particular witness is going to be the first Defence witness who comes from Sierra Leone. You will note that the two other witnesses who we've called so far do not originate from Sierra Leone. This particular witness is especially anxious, as the first Defence witness for Mr Taylor to come from Sierra Leone itself, that he may suffer reprisals for giving evidence in a cause which, I hope I can put delicately in this way, is not a particularly popular cause in Sierra Leone. It is for that reason that he has expressed very considerable anxiety to me when I've seen him over the last few days about his identity being disclosed fully to the public.
What he would like would be simply for his name and identifying details not to be made public. He is a gentleman who always, when I've met him, wears a hat, and his view is that if he were allowed to wear his hat, that would also to a degree protect his identity.
May I say there's an incidental further point as far as that is concerned. He is suffering at the moment from a cold, and he therefore would like to dress up as warmly as possible. I can tell your Honours that despite the central heating being on in the premises where we've been seeing these witnesses, several of them have sat there wearing coats and even gloves because the temperature for them, coming from West Africa, is still very difficult indeed to adjust to. While we've been taking off layer after layer of clothing, they've been putting them on.
But in any event, in his case he is suffering from a cold, he would like to wear as many clothes as possible, including, if you would allow it, his hat, which would also go some way about allaying his concerns about many people recognising him as somebody who has been involved in the past with the RUF. That is the organisation that he will be talking about.
His anxieties do not stem from any particular incident. They stem solely from his own concerns as somebody who has lived in Sierra Leone throughout the entire period and who is still anxious that people do not know him any longer - sorry, do not associate him with the history of the rebel movement of that country.
Unless there's any other matter on which you think I can specifically assist you, those are my submissions.
