That is correct, Madam President. The next witness to be called is TF1-045. This witness is the subject of protective measures based on a decision in the RUF case, the Sesay et al case, dated 5 July 2004. The witness was listed as a Category C witness. In addition to those protections, on 19 July 2005 in the case of Brima et al in court at pages 2 and 3 of the transcript the witness was granted closed session for certain portions of the witness's testimony. On 18 November 2005 in the Sesay et al case, at pages 44 to 46, the witness was again granted closed session for certain portions of his testimony.
The Prosecution has spoken with the witness and the witness wishes to waive the protections - all of the protections - for his in court testimony. Therefore the Prosecution is asking the Trial Chamber to rescind the decisions of 19 July 2005 and 18 November 2005, insofar as they would grant closed session in this case for certain portions of testimony, and also to rescind certain provisions of the decision of 5 July 2004.
Those provisions are: paragraph (a) of the decision dealing with pseudonyms; paragraphs (b) and (c) dealing with the disclosure of identifying information, except insofar as it deals with addresses and whereabouts of the witness; paragraph (d) insofar as it deals with the witness's testimony today in open court; paragraph (e) dealing with the use of a screening device; and paragraph (i) dealing with voice distortion for Category C witnesses.
So we would ask that those provisions be rescinded to the extent indicated in the remarks I have just made and that the witness would be called to testify openly. In addition, for your information the witness will testify in the Krio language.
