The transcripts of the trial of Charles Taylor, former President of Liberia. More…

Yes, Madam President, and it is to the benefit of everyone for reasons, administrative and otherwise, to know exactly where things stand.

What I can say to the Court now is that at the end of the close of this witness's testimony, lead counsel will be present before your Honours to advise your Honours as to the status of the progression of our case, whether we are indeed calling no further live witnesses after this witness, and the email, I think, allows us that flexibility, if you will.

I now have a copy of it, and essentially Mr Griffiths wrote that:

"Please be informed that at the conclusion of the testimony of DCT-008 it is not anticipated, as currently instructed, that any further live witnesses will be called to testify."

So there is a qualification there and I will let Mr Griffiths speak to that when he comes before your Honours.
