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

That is correct, Madam President. Madam President, the witness order that we had provided showed that for this week we were to have a carry over of TF1-168 and we would also have TF1-579. TF1-168 did not travel as was anticipated he would based on personal scheduling issues. TF1-579 is here. He had security issues that we were able to deal with to his final satisfaction over the weekend. Therefore TF1-579 is available to testify this week.

TF1-168 - because of the schedule of lead Defence counsel, which he gave notice of a couple of weeks ago, TF1-168 would not testify until the week of 17 November or later based on lead Defence counsel's availability. In regard to TF1-579 I did discuss this with the Defence earlier and they may need time to consult with their client before we would talk about any joint requests, so I would perhaps ask if they do need time to consult and then based on that consultation I could tell you our proposal for TF1-579.
