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

Madam President, we are grateful for the time. Now, Madam President, of course we are aware of the difficulties faced by the Prosecution this week and I am further grateful to my learned friends opposite for accommodating my own professional difficulties in respect of witness TF1-168 next week when I am in difficulties.

However, what we suggest, following our consultation with Mr Taylor, who is concerned about this, is that we do not sit at all this week which will accommodate a number of other issues which concern all parties to this case. However, we would submit that when we reconvene next Monday we would be grateful for a definitive list of all witnesses the Prosecution intend to call up until the conclusion of their case so that we can plan with a definite time line in mind. So that is our submission.
