[The accused present]
[Upon commencing at 9.30 a.m.]
The Special Court for Sierra Leone is sitting in an open session in the case of the Prosecutor versus Charles Ghankay Taylor, Justice Teresa Doherty presiding.
Good morning and I welcome you all back. I will start by taking appearances, please.
Your Honour, for the Prosecution, good morning, Brenda J Hollis, Alain Werner, Maja Dimitrova and myself, Nicholas Koumjian.
Thank you, Mr Koumjian.
Good morning, Madam President, your Honours, counsel opposite. For the Defence there is myself, Terry Munyard, and Andrew Cayley.
Thank you. And I note that witness TF1-532 is in the witness box, is that correct? It is some weeks since the witness was sworn and so I have in mind to re-swear the witness. Has counsel any comment on that? No. It is your witness, Mr Koumjian.
No, thank you.
Very well. Thank you, Madam Court Attendant. Please assist us.
