Yes, Madam President, the Defence's next witness will be DCT-008. Before the witness is brought before the Court, there are a few preliminary matters I should indicate.
The first is that the witness will be testifying in Liberian English through an interpreter.
The second is that the witness wishes to be sworn by taking the solemn declaration pursuant to Rule 90(B).
Last but not the least, is that the witness wishes to avail himself of the protective measure of pseudonym, that is to testify using the pseudonym DCT-008.
We submit, as your Honours are well familiar, that a decision rendered by your Honours on 27 May 2009, filed under CMS 782 allows ex-combatants of the civil conflicts in either Liberia or Sierra Leone to be afforded the protective measure of pseudonym and this particular witness in our submission falls under the first category, that is being an ex-combatant that fought during the civil war in Liberia. And so he wishes to avail himself of that protective measure. Thank you.
