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

Your Honour, the witness that will be called this morning is TF1-233. He will testify in Temne and his wish it to testify in open session. In that regard there is an application by the Prosecution which I hope won't take too long. It's an application for recision of protective measures.

I am fully cognisant of your Honours' decision on Monday in relation to TF1-160. Like TF1-160 this witness was granted protective measures by virtue of that decision of 5 July 2004 as a category 1 witness, witness of fact, and a screen and pseudonym was granted. As I said, I am cognisant of your Honours' earlier ruling on this, however we feel technically that we need to formally ask for recision of those protective measures. So that is the application.
