The transcripts of the trial of Charles Taylor, former President of Liberia. More…

It is quite simply this, Mr President, and that is one day to determine the disclosure obligations now imposed pursuant to this decision we do not believe is unreasonable. We do appreciate that this cross-examination has moved in, if you will, fits and starts but we have been diligent in moving forward to the extent of having Mr Koumjian appear when unfortunately I was ill. We do want to do things efficiently and methodically and appropriately and we believe that one day to digest this decision and to prepare to go forward on the basis of it is not inappropriate.

As to the other arguments about evidence that should have been put in our case in chief, we believe the decision before us deals with those matters, so we will not address those.
