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

Certainly. Thank you, Mr Griffiths.

For the members of the public sitting in the gallery, you will note that the curtain immediately behind Mr Taylor is down. That would normally be the position where a witness is testifying in a closed or private session. Actually, Mr Taylor is testifying in open session and the reason for the curtain being down is that there is a technical fault. This curtain has not been able to be put up again. This is reasons beyond our own control and so that is why you cannot see Mr Taylor. We really hope that this will be fixed quickly because there is going to come a time when witnesses need to come in and have a proper open session or a proper closed session. We need this curtain fixed.
