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

Well, I think that is the current position, your Honour, and as far as I'm concerned it's a provision with which we've complied. Two weeks in advance disclosure of the exhibits to be used during that week of trial, and we've complied with that. I see my case manager nodding in agreement and she is an expert on these matters.

Can I also make this point: If we are talking about the monitoring of conversations involving Mr Taylor, then it seems to us that any calls from him to a potential witness cannot be the subject of such monitoring but should be clothed in the same legal professional privilege which obtains when he speaks to his lawyers.
