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

I don't accept that, Mr President. I suggest that this has nothing whatsoever to do with that order. We are dealing with the testimony of the witness concerning a speech he made in December 1998 in which he mentioned a report by Colonel Dempsey. That should be looked at separately and independently from any disclosure made by the Prosecution and covered by the ruling of this Court on 2 November.

We cannot hide the fact that in this paragraph that we are looking at the witness himself, before any indictment was issued against him, made mention of this report by Colonel Dempsey. This is quite separate.
