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

Good morning, Madam President, your Honours, counsel opposite. For the Defence this morning there is Courtenay Griffiths QC, Morris Anyah and myself Terry Munyard.

Madam President, before we commence any of the proceedings on I think Wednesday morning of last week, certainly on a working day before the Court rose for the judges plenary, I wrote an email to my learned friends opposite asking them to ensure that the tape recordings that the next witness refers to in a number of his statements - that the tapes themselves are brought to Court so that we can see them. I haven't yet had any reply to that email and therefore I am just inquiring through the Bench, as it were, if those tapes have been brought to Court and are available for us to inspect.
