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

Thank you, Madam President. Very briefly, we would ask your Honours for the following procedure. We believe there are two options. The first option would be that we begin our cross-examination of DCT-190 tomorrow morning on those portions of the testimony for which we had notice. As I indicated yesterday, we do need to use our investigators on some of the new matters. We have sent taskings for that. We would not be prepared to deal with those new matters tomorrow.

We still are of the view we would be prepared to deal with those new matters towards the end of next week, should your Honours allow us that time. So we would ask that other witnesses be interposed.

But, to be clear, we would be prepared to proceed with some of the cross-examination beginning tomorrow morning. And we do want to thank the Defence. Last evening at 1836 we were provided about 35 pages of statements of the witness.
