We've done our best to consider the points of view of both parties on the submissions they have put to us. I can begin by saying that we had to put next Monday out of the question. There are some logistical problems on that date.
Now, if we can deal with the matters as in the order listed in the agenda, the first matter is the Prosecution motion to substitute final trial brief, and the Trial Chamber grants the Prosecution request to substitute the revised and refined Prosecution final trial brief.
Incidentally, if any of these orders are not 100 per cent clear, please let us know.
The second item, the submissions on whether the Trial Chamber should accept the corrigendum to the Defence final trial brief, the corrigendum, I think the full title is, "Public with annex A and confidential annex B corrigendum to Defence final brief as filed on 3rd of February 2011," that corrigendum is accepted, provided the confidentially - confidentiality requirements are observed.
The third item, the length and format of the corrected Defence final trial brief, the Trial Chamber considers that the material in annexes A, B and C, can be regarded as factual argument and, as such, properly belongs in the main document, and therefore, the Defence final trial brief will be limited to 600 pages, as originally ordered. We do point out, however, that the Defence final trial brief, as it stands, is 544 pages long. And we get those figures in this way: The first three pages of that final trial brief are concerned with a motion, and the last page bears just a signature and nothing else. So that the proper length of that brief, taking those considerations into account, is 544 pages, which the Defence therefore has 56 pages to accommodate the material in the annexes.
Now, item 4 and item 5, are the filing of written responses to the final trial briefs and the date and time for Defence closing arguments.
The Prosecution will be permitted to deliver an oral response to the Defence's final trial brief on Wednesday, that is the 9th of - that's this week, the 9th of March, between 9 and 11. Now, that means the Defence will begin its closing arguments on Wednesday, the 9th of March, from 11.30 and going over to the following day, on Thursday, the period of the Defence closing arguments will be from 9 to 11 a.m. in the morning, in other words, the Defence closing arguments will conclude at 11 a.m. on Thursday, the 10th of March.
As to the Defence request to file a written response to the Prosecution's final trial brief, the Defence may do so provided that the written response is filed no later than close of business, 4 p.m., Thursday, the 10th of March.
Now, rebuttal arguments, that is the final item, are scheduled as follows: On Friday, the 11th of March, between 9 and 11, the Prosecution will deliver its arguments in rebuttal, and the Defence rebuttal arguments will take place between 11.30 to 13.30, on Friday, the 11th of March.
There is just one other matter that I didn't cover, and Justice Sebutinde has reminded me. The Prosecution - I beg your pardon, the Defence corrigendum to the Defence final trial brief, with the amended - as amended by the Court, in other words confined to 600 pages, shall be filed by close of business Wednesday, the 9th of March.
