Good morning. Mr Koumjian, I see a change of appearance.
Yes, good morning, your Honours, counsel opposite. For the Prosecution Nicholas Koumjian, Alain Werner and Ruth Mary Hackler.
Thank you. Mr Anyah.
Good morning, Madam President. Good morning, your Honours. Good morning, counsel opposite. Appearing for the Defence this morning are Mr Terry Munyard and myself, Morris Anyah. Thank you.
Just before I remind the witness of his oath were counsel able to get the transcript of the matters that were to be dealt with in open session and mark them up in accordance with their respective applications?
I was able to just in the last hour, yes.
I see. Well, if you need a little time maybe it can be dealt with --
I'm prepared and I don't know if counsel's prepared but if he would like I could show him the areas that I propose to publish. There's some I agree and if there's a disagreement --
Very well. I think that might be constructive and I will invite counsel to deal with it during the break. If there are no other matters I will remind the witness of his oath.
Good morning, Mr Witness.
I wish to remind you that yesterday you took the oath to tell the truth. That oath is still binding on you and you must answer questions truthfully. Do you understand?
