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

Sorry, Madam President, I might - I have a small issue to raise concerning the detention conditions of Mr Sesay and Mr Taylor. Just to put the Court into the picture, Mr Taylor and Mr Sesay have been living in the same detention unit but under completely isolated circumstances. I understand that over the weekend, there is a joint sports activity that is going to happen at the detention centre which will involve detainees in the ICTY detention centre where Mr Sesay is, and the ICC detention centre where Mr Taylor is will be meeting together. With that in mind, we were asking for your permission for the restrictive measures isolating Mr Taylor from Mr Sesay to be lifted so that they can interact with other detainees.
