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

Before I remind Mr Taylor, I have a preliminary announcement to make regarding the sitting hours tomorrow. As you might have learnt, the ICC is swearing in two new judges tomorrow and the judges of the Special Court have been requested kindly to attend the ceremony tomorrow morning and so we've decided we are going to take an early morning break at twenty minutes past 10 in the morning in order to be downstairs in the courtroom where the ceremony will take place in time. We will then resume our normal sitting at 12 noon. So those will be our sitting hours tomorrow. We will break at 20 past 10 in the morning and resume at 12.

Now, Mr Taylor, I remind you, as we normally do, that you have taken a declaration to tell the truth.
