It is merely this, Madam President, and it's to revisit a topic raised yesterday by my learned friend Mr Munyard. In anticipation of the fact that we would not be sitting next week I made arrangements for various individuals to travel to The Hague so that we could have a meeting to discuss certain matters regarding the forthcoming Defence case. As a consequence, two of those individuals have already arrived and are scheduled to leave The Hague on Wednesday. Others are due to arrive over the course of the weekend with a view, as originally planned, to having a meeting on Tuesday of next week.
Now, Mr Munyard is not in a position to predict how long he will be with this witness, but I anticipate he will be at least, after today, another full day.
So the application I am making at this point in time is that at the very least we not sit on Tuesday to enable me to meet with those individuals who have travelled a great distance and at no little inconvenience to themselves to be here next week and then if needs be reconvene on Wednesday to conclude this witness.
